Abstract

Marx is widely regarded today as an evolutionaryeconomist. However, what is clear from a close examination of thewritings of both Marx and Engels is that they did not actually takeDarwins theory of natural selection on board. Consequently, if theirtheory of socioeconomic change is evolutionary, it is not so in aDarwinian sense. Considers the different sense in which the economics ofMarx can be regarded as evolutionary and the distancebetween Darwinian and Marxian conceptions of natural or social change.
