Ecological Criticism of Historical Materialism

Abstract


Historical materialism, as an important component of Marxism, contains very wealthy ecological ethic thought. The founders of Marxism always kept materialist conception of history as the fundamental principle, and regarded “the first historical activity” of humans—namely production practice activity, as the most direct, intimate and realistic intermediary between humans and the nature, humans and society as well as humans and themselves, based on which they demonstrated and elaborated the essential contact between humans and the nature, humans and society as well as humans and themselves in detail, which reflected very wealthy ecological ethic thought.


Keywords
