2/1/07 Thursday (Missed first 10 minutes…) I. Nature of materialism A. Pg. 27 (bottom): “In direct contrast…” 1. Real life process how people interact with nature to create things 2. Ideology for Marx – mask for power a. His favorite example: In the Middle Ages, peasants were taught religion and to respect priests; they were made illiterate but taught to be humble and obedient because they were all sinners of the Original Sin 1). Marx saw this as the peasants were taught ideologies for social control 2). Idea of Original Sin were seen by Marx as an ideology for control; to keep them low and humble B. Pg. 28: “It is not consciousness that determines life, but life that determines consciousness.” 1. Consciousness comes to people through their real life experiences (how they live) – Marx wants to show people the importance of material circumstances in shaping life a. Ex. Material circumstances – what you do for living; how you interact will shape how you see the world C. You can see that Marx is really trying to break new grounds and break away from the Hegelian school of thinking II.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
