From the Paper:

"This paper refers to Friedrich Engels (1820-1883) and his model of materialism in which he argued that the principle and nature of production were "the basis of every social order." (Anti-Durhing 292) The nature and means of production was what created each society's social classes that owed to what was produced and how and how the product was exchanged. The course text, Anti-Durhing, to which this paper belongs was published in 1878, a few years before Engels died, his ideas firm on historical materialism as not just a model or theory but a reality."
