The current study examines production in its entirety, as a process of exchange of matter between nature and man. It discusses the whole process from the point of view of man and the result, the product produced. It explores the elements of production and their interconnection, as well as the relationships of people that develop for this purpose. The relations of production and the division of labour are analysed. In addition, these are examined in the specific social forms up to modern production and the trends of development. In particular, modern capitalist production is analyzed in its component parts and, combined, the laws governing it. The cycling of industrial capital and its important mechanisms of operation are explored. Contemporary production is periodized according to the means of labour and concepts such as science, technique and technology are analyzed. In particular, the period of cooperation, manifolding, mechanised machining and higher mechanisation, partial automation are analysed. The central concept, the core of the whole process is labour, which from the perspective of the present is driven to automation. The study is based on the research results of the dialectical methodology where nature is removed from social production.
