This article aims to explore a multidimensional theoretical framework for social development. The core elements of Marxist social development theory are first outlined, including historical materialism, the theoretical logic of scientific socialism, and the theory of the “three forms” of social development. Subsequently, the article examines the application and evolution of these theories in the process of Chinese-style modernization, especially in the theoretical guidance and practical application of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Through comparative analysis, this article reveals the adaptability and transformative nature of social development theory in different historical stages, providing theoretical support for understanding contemporary social development.
