The philosophic solution that Lenin and Engels proposed was "dialectical materialism", wherein matter is defined as objective reality, theoretically consistent with new developments occurring in the sciences. The superstructure —the cultural and institutional features of a society, its ideological materials—is ultimately an expression of the mode of production on which the society is founded. Marx drew his conclusions from these two concepts. Yet Marx saw that capitalism, too, had its own contradictions, particularly in the overproduction of goods.

Historical materialism posits that history is made as a result of struggle between different social classes rooted in the underlying economic base.
