Marx’s "consistent history and logic" means that history itself has logic to follow, and people can continue to understand and grasp the logic of history. History and logic are two sides of the same body, and the two achieve dialectical unity in the social reality movement. According to the requirement of "consistent history and logic", people today must re-examine the theory itself from the highest point of the development of practice, retelling that the origin of the relationship between history and logic lies in the relationship between thinking and existence, and the purpose of philosophy is to focus on existence with thinking, and the so-called focus means that people not only have to be able to correctly understand the world, but also to actively transform the world.
