Example text

This position seems to be superficially similar to that of John Stuart Mill and the sceptical empiricists, who argue that the senses or their surrogates can never yield social knowledge which can truthfully approximate social reality. However, historical materialists take this argument one step further, by arguing that society is a totality or system which is regulated or conditioned by structural relations and can thus never be understood through the method of empiricist atomism. Further, the process of development of thought-concretes is ongoing and thus is simply arrested and incomplete if it rests with or is explained through transhistorical abstractions or theories, like those associated with the Cassandras of the rise and (inevitable) fall of (Roman, Dutch, British) American hegemony.

With regard to concept formation our senses are partly theoreticians; our ideas of what is or can be are produced conceptually and our conceptual frameworks are partly produced by the environment or society. With regard to the process of knowledge, one version of how the historical dialectic, as I have defined it here, might be approached is though Marx’s ideas concerning the ‘concrete-real’ (which determines theory) and the ‘thought-concrete’ (which is an understanding of the concrete or the significance of social action and structure generated by the process of reflection and thought).
