   Influenced by the views of Young Hegelians, such as Arnold Luge, young Engels understood the theoretical significance of Young Hegelians from the perspective of implementing philosophical principle of freedom through political action. This understanding is not only reflected in his critique of the thoughts of Ernst Moritz Arndt and F.W.J. Schelling, but also in his criticism of the retrogressive phenomena in the cultural and political life of Prussia at that time. After arriving in England, young Engels gradually eliminated the influence of the methodology of Young Hegelians and started his journey to historical materialism.
