Marx's 'Psychohistorical Materialism'. COMMENT Just Posted.

Dear Readers,

I posted, just yesterday, to a Reddit query entitled "What is Historical and Dialectical Materialism??", at --

(1) What is Historical and Dialectical Materialism?? : communism101 (reddit.com)

-- the following response:

" "Historical Materialism" and "Dialectical Materialism" are not Marx's terms. They are terms associated with Leninist and Stalinist ideology." 


 "As can be gleaned, starting at least from Marx's Theses on Feuerbach, Marx's theory is no "Materialism" in the sense of an actually Idealist, 'Matterist' ideology, holding that the Abstract Idea of Matter predominates over all other Abstract Ideas, or in the sense of a "Mechanical Materialism"." 


"Marx's theory is better described as a 'Psychohistorical Materialism', because Marx always takes the human psyche into account in his theorization of human-social [meta-]evolutions/-revolutions." 

 

"That is why Marx devoted most of his works to the [dialectical, immanent] critique of prevailing ideologies -- why his treatise Capital is subtitled "A Critique of Political Economy"."


"That is why Marx asserted, in his "Economic-Philosophic Manuscripts" of 1844, that the history of human industry, as it objectively exists, is an open book of the human faculties, and a human psychology that can be sensuously apprehended."


"That is why he asserted that '"theory itself becomes a material force"' once it has seized the hearts and minds of the majority class."


"That is also why Marx asserted, in his Grundrisse"The recognition of the products [by the wage-worker as that worker's] own, and the judgement that [the wage-worker's] separation from the conditions of [the wage-worker's] realization is improper -- forcibly imposed -- is an enormous awareness, itself the product of the mode of production resting on capital, and as much the knell of its doom as, with the slave's awareness that he cannot be the property of another, with his consciousness of himself as a person, the existence of slavery becomes a merely artificial, vegetative existence, and ceases to be able to prevail as the basis of production." [Nicolaus, p. 463, overall italics added]."


"Marx's 'Psychohistorical Materialist' theory is best regarded as arising from a dialectical synthesis of -- via an immanent critique of both -- Mechanical Materialism and/versus Hegelian Dialectical Idealism."

Miguel

Dear Reader,

 

 

It is my pleasure, and my honor, as an elected member of the Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.] General Council, and as a voting member of F.E.D., to share, with you, from time to time, as they are approved for public release, by the F.E.D. General Council, key excerpts from the internal writings, and from the internal sayings, of our co-founder, Karl Seldon.

 

The ninth release in this new such series is posted below [Some E.D. standard edits have been applied, in the version presented below, by the editors of the F.E.D. Special Council for the Encyclopedia, to the direct transcript of our co-founder’s discourse].

 

In this 9th installment, Seldon describes the similarities and differences between the concept of “ordinary zero”, which we call ‘empty zero’, denoted by 0, and the E.D. concept which we call ‘full zero’, the sign for ontological, ‘meta-finite singularity’ [see below].

COMMENT: Psychohistory, Fictional versus Actual -- Just Posted Yesterday.

Dear Readers,

FYI:  I just posted the following comment yesterday --

"For those who see that the present ruling plutocracy is planning a “95% reduction” of Earth’s human population, leading to a global New/Final Dark Age, I urge you to ally with those who are working to develop not a fictional but a real psychohistory here on Earth: Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica."

‘The DUality of «Aufheben» Conservation – INternal and EXternal’. -- Part 08: Seldon’s Secrets Series.

 

 The DUality of «Aufheben» Conservation

INternal and EXternal’.

-- Part 08: Seldon’s Secrets Series.

 

 

 

Dear Reader,

 

 

 

It is my pleasure, and my honor, as an elected member of the Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.] General Council, and as a voting member of F.E.D., to share, with you, from time to time, as they are approved for public release, by the F.E.D. General Council, key excerpts from the internal writings, and from the internal sayings, of our co-founder, Karl Seldon.

 

The eighth release in this new such series is posted below [Some E.D. standard edits have been applied, in the version presented below, by the editors of the F.E.D. Special Council for the Encyclopedia, to the direct transcript of our co-founder’s discourse].

 

In this 8th installment, Seldon describes the seldom-noticed, evolute, dual character of the ‘‘‘conservation moment’’’ of the core process of all true dialectic:  the «aufheben» process.

 

Seldon --

The ‘“conservation”’ “moment” of the dialectical, «aufheben» process/relation, e.g., of ‘meta-«monad»-ization’/-‘meta-«monad»-icity’, is not just a simple, single, singular “moment”.”

 

“It is dual.”

 

“Yes, it is the internal conservation of immediately-previous ‘self-hybrid’ «monads», inside their newest, immediately-next higher ‘self-hybrid’ [meta-monads», of the next higher ontological category/«arithmos» of «monads».”

 

“But the ‘“conservation”’ “moment” of the «aufheben» process/relation is also the external, ‘‘‘evolute’’’ continuation/-‘‘‘conservation’’’ of some of those immediate-predecessor ‘self-hybrid’ «monads», of those that do not enter in to the new, next, immediate successor ‘self-hybrid’ [meta-monads»; that remain outside of those newer [meta-monads» and thus also outside of their, new, [meta-arithmos»/ontological category.”

 

“That is why the product rule axiom – the ontological-categorial multiplication rule axiom – that we most typically employ in the ‘meta-model meta-equation’ descriptions of various Domains within this cosmos, and of this cosmos as a whole, using the axioms-systems of the NQ dialectical ideography, is named/described as the double-conservation «aufheben» evolute product rule.”

 

This rule prescribes that, given an ontological category denoted by x, or qx, its ontological self-multiplication looks like this –

qx  x  qx    =   qx  +  qxx.

The second term of this categorial product, qxx, represents the, usually recognized in the dialectical traditions, internal aspect of the ‘‘‘conservation’’’ “moment” of the «aufheben» process/relation.  That is, qxx represents a [meta-arithmos» or ontological category that is made up out of [meta-]units each of which is an ‘x of xs’, or an ‘x x’, i.e., is a ‘meta-x’, new unit, each one typically made up out of a heterogeneous multiplicity of “mere” x units.  Thus, at least some of the [former] x units are ‘‘‘«aufheben»-conserved’’’ inside each of the new, higher ‘meta-x’ units.

 

“The first term of the product equation above is just the, “mere”, ‘“reproduction”’ of the category/«arithmos»- symbol qx, which was also the multiplier category/«arithmos»-symbol, and also the multiplicand category/«arithmos»-symbol, on the Left-Hand Side of that product equation.”   

 

“That first term, usually not recognized in the dialectical traditions, is there, in the product definition equation, because, in general, not all of the qx units are «aufheben»-assimilated into the new, higher qxx units, in the typical dialectical, self-«aufheben» process of an ontological category/«arithmos» qx.”

 

“Thus, for example, in the ‘All-Domain’ of the ‘self-meta-evolution’ of our cosmos, as told in the language of physio-ontological categoriesarithmoi», consider the ‘cosmo-ontological’ category of molecules, call it qm.”

 

“The ontological units/-«monads» known as “molecules” are [self-]hybridizations of their [sub-]units, known as “atoms”, call them qa.  So –

qa  x  qa    =   qa  +  qaa  |-=  qa  +  qm.”

 

“Some interstellar ‘atomic clouds’, consisting only of “atom” units, without yet supporting units of the higher level of organization known as “molecules”, still exist to this very day.  Also, many “molecular clouds’ still contain atom units, not yet «aufheben»-assimilated into the higher units known as “molecules”.  Thus, units of the qa category are still present, even so many millennia after the first, primordial, interstellar ‘atomic clouds’ [self-]transformed into [predominantly] qaa  |-=  qm “molecular clouds”.

 

“For another example, again in the ‘All-Domain’ of the ‘self-meta-evolution’ of our cosmos, consider, again, the ‘cosmo-ontological’ category of atomic nuclei.  Again, let’s call it qa.”

 

“The ontological unitsmonads» known as “atomic nuclei are [self-]hybridizations of their [sub-]units, known as “nucleons” – e.g., protons and neutrons -- call them collectively by the category-symbol qn.  So –

qn  x  qn    =   qn  +  qnn  |-=  qn  +  qa.”

 

“Nucleon units fused themselves together to form fully-ionized atomic nuclei units, first off, to current understanding, during the ‘‘‘cosmological nucleosynthesis’’’, or “Big Bang nucleosynthesis”, epoch, in which, e.g., many “free” proton units – units “free” of the higher level of organization characterizing atomic nucleus units – combined to form atomic nucleus units, in the sufficiently-diminished “heat” of the self-expanding/‘self-diluting’ “Big Bang”, cosmos-encompassing “fire ball”.”

 

“Many of the “free” nucleon units were thus [self-]transformed into atomic nucleus units – e.g., into the nuclei of [fully-ionized] atomic Helium.”

 

“However, many of those “free” nucleon units, e.g., proton units, have remained extant to this day, in “circulation” within our cosmos, having never yet been ‘«aufheben»-assimilated’ into the higher units known as “atoms”. 

 

“Such protonic, ‘proto-nucleonic’ units persist, e.g., in the forms of protonic “high energy cosmic rays”, and also of vast galactic clouds of protons as “Hydrogen ions”.  Thus, many units of the qn category are still present, even so many millennia after “Big Bang nucleosynthesis” [self-]transformed so many others of them into qnn  |-=  qaatomic clouds’ of ionic atomic nuclei.
