I can't quite see what the phrase 唯物史观 really means here. Could someone please reformulate it with other words or just longer?

任何一门学科,包括理科,都是知识体系和价值体系的结合统一。物理学科的科学精神、唯物史观,不都是思想教育的重要内容吗? 所以,教育工作者要有整体的育人观念。

In the text 科学精神 and 唯物史观 are separated with a listing comma '、' for which I use 'and'.

唯物: materialistic ??
史观: historically speaking ?? historical??

the scientific mind of physics and (、) historical materialism,
are they not both important parts of ideological education?

  • 不都是思想教育的重要内容吗? is a rhetorical question. I am not sure if 'Aren't they ...?' and 'Are they not ...' take the same effect in English, for I saw people use "Aren't they..." for a rhetorical question most of time.

  • 没有什么两样’aren't they' 和 ’are they not' 之间。 ’aren't they'也不一定修辞的

From the wikepedia page:

历史唯物主义(英语:Historical Materialism)是马克思主义哲学的重要组成部分,也被称为唯物主义历史理论(materialist conception of history)或唯物史观

  • 马克思先生不信奉上帝了吗? 'Materialism' means you only believe in the physical world. Marx died before Quantum Mechanics really started, or he may have reconsidered!

  • @Pedroski Things don't need to be match their name. For example, the Queen rules the United Kingdom, but really?
