Understanding the Dialectic
What is the dialectic though? What is dialectical thinking?
New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 21 | James Lindsey
Leftist thought for at least the past 250 years has taken a particular form that is not the usual form of thinking and understanding we know and love. It's something completely different. The Left, perhaps since Rousseau and definitely since Hegel, has been dialectical in its thinking. It is the Dialectical Left. What is the dialectic though? What is dialectical thinking? In short, it's the fusion of opposites in a way that understands them from a higher-level perspective, which is necessarily synthetic. In this slightly longer episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay explains the dialectic and dialectical thought in some detail with a considerable number of examples to help you understand this synthetic approach to thought and why it's always going to be a catastrophe in the making.
After listening to “Understanding the Dialectic”, why not back track and listen to the previous episode “The Dialectic of Global Citizenship”
