Friedrich Engels is often eclipsed by the monumental figure of Karl Marx.
Later in his life, however, Engels moves away from this dogmatic approach: "Engels warns the younger generation not to confuse the ideas of his deceased friend, to whom he ascribes in retrospect a rather tolerant sensibility, with the rigid dogmatism of Hegelian philosophy.
Engels was more flexible in his approach: "[the] materialistic method turns into its opposite when it is not used as a guide to historical study but rather as a prefabricated pattern according to which one adjusts the historical facts" (Demetz 141).
