Term Definition
marxism

the political and economic philosophy of Karl Marx (1818-1883) and Friedrich Engels (1820-1895). In brief the theory holds that social and political structures are determined by economic conditions that class domination has been the key phenomenon in social history that class struggle creates historical change and that capitalism will be superseded ultimately bycommunism. One aspect of its educational application for example would be the view that schools and the curriculum are not neutral but serve dominant class  interests.
