Actually, I think "historical materialism" was not intended to be a
full-blown world view.  It arguably extended the approach of earlier
writers like Vico.  In contrast, the concept of "dialectical
materialism" represented the entrenched doctrines of the German social
democracy, then the Soviet regime.

I always suspect these high church litanies myself.

Best,
Mark L.
