In this article, a discussion will be carried out about the ethical limits of the conceptualizing set presented by Marx. The issue can be formulated as follows: Marx argues that capitalism is an exploitive regime, and blames the capitalist class of theft. However, the same Marx, in the historical materialist context, touches on the continuity in the relationships of upper and lower classes and the legitimization of the lower class by higher class in the last instance. Are these two approaches conflicting? Can Marx find capitalism guilty of its exploitative behavior and at the same time, can he declare it fair? The reasonable solution of this aforementioned duality is the reminder that Marx has a realistic understanding of making science as hoped to be described in the study.
