By Andrea Micocci

the target of this ebook is to build an separately emancipatory monetary and political philosophy. this implies a concrete-based, man-centered, non-hypostatizing, anti-dialectical method of the apprehension of the fabric, i.e. nature mostly. This constitutes an emancipation from culture-based understandings of truth, and specifically from the metaphysically biased kind of tradition represented by way of capitalism. The proposed philosophical emancipation skill person liberation from the logically fallacious, massifying personality of the dominant mode of considered capitalist occasions. From those bases, the social sciences can be reformulated.

Political financial system in reality, being a such a lot consultant example of dialectical considering, mirrors the dialectical nature of capitalist fiscal and political relationships. in keeping with Micocci, non-dialectical occurrences in capitalism are easily excluded from common social, monetary, and highbrow actions, that are played in a metaphysical, intellectually remoted atmosphere. In capitalism, as a result, the fabrics, the concrete, i.e. nature itself, isn't really regarded as an entire yet purely as occasional cases. Micocci describes capitalism, in sum, as an intellectually built tradition (a metaphysics) which preserves itself, and props itself up, through its iterative (market-like) functioning.
