Abstract

How inevitable is the progress of human society? How to explain the technological changes in a society? Is there any built-in positive trend in such change? Or is regression, or at least stagnation, possible at some phase of history? These are all big questions on a wide area and a full treatment would require much more space than this paper. Here we try to examine these questions in a Marxian framework, hoping to reach some conclusions bearing on the Dobb-Sweezy debate on the transition from feudalism to capitalism.
