Abstract or Brief Description

-- Cutting-Edge Dialectics --

FROM THE REVIEW: "Nitzan and Bichler replace the possibility of thinking the unity in contradiction of objectivity and subjectivity, of being and thought, with the fantasy of a theory that plainly states the facts; instead of the complex immanent relations between contradiction and mediation, we get the external relation of immediacy and truth as opposed to plain lies, illusions and falsities."
