Shiyu LI


Engels as Marx’s close comrade in arms, revolutionary companion, has been along with Marx. They co-founded the theory of the proletarian revolution in pursuit of human liberation. Their relationship with academic once seen as one, with consistency. While in the west, about the academic relationship between them, constantly questioned and twisted by some scholars, thus forming a thought that considered Engels is Marx revisionism. The relationship between the Marx doctrine and Marc theory, the academic relation between Marx and Engels, the contact as well differences between them have constantly been stripped. Academia gradually made the theme highlighted in the process of questioning and arguing constantly in the west, it appeared “Marx and Engels on the arguments”, and its corresponding “Marx and Engels theory of consistency”. But in recent years, “on the difference between Marx and Engels” has been widely recognized. Here, it’s great significant for a better understanding of the relationship between Marx’s academic ideas and Engels’s, a deeper understanding of their ideological content and the original text as well if we cared the academic relationship between Marx and Engels.
