I think the central conflict is around what exactly "civilized" means. Certainly the white Europeans believe they are in the and of savages. Once there, the pull into darkness becomes tempting as we see with Kurtz. Marlow sees the conflict between the savagery of his own white people against the perceived savagery of the indigenous population.
