Dear Andy,

If we agree that Hegel's Science of Logic is an expression of the whole of bourgeois culture, and you can expand that idea so that it makes sense, then we are really getting somewhere. Neither Lenin nor any of the dialectical materialists understood that. Marx's critique of Hegel then makes the entire notion of dialectics inseparable from his communism. Now talk about nature and our relation to the rest of it in that framework and you will save me trying to do what I am sure has to be done, but can't!

Best wishes,
