The thought of historical materialism founded by Marx has great guiding significance and far-reaching influence on the development of economic anthropology. This paper discusses Marxist economic anthropology’s ideological origin, development trend, schools, main viewpoints, and theoretical defects. It analyzes the enlightenment and guiding significance of Marxism on economic anthropology theory in terms of problem consciousness, research methods, and research objects, and combs out the research on some social development issues at the forefront of foreign economic anthropology theory, including the inequality of world development, the paradigm of “development” and unstable economy. Based on this, it makes a preliminary analysis of the development of Marxist economic anthropology from historical materialism perspectives in the new era.
