What We Call The Beginning Is Often The End. - T.S. Eliot.
"I foresee that the ultimate result will be a restatement of Marx, but substituting to his Hegelian metaphysics and terminology our own modern Metaphysics and terminology: by metaphysics here I mean, I suppose, the emotions that are associated with our terminology and frame (schemi mentali) – that is, what is absolutely necessary to make the theory living (lebendig), capable of assimilation and at all intelligible. If this is true, it is an exceptional example of how far a difference in metaphysics can make to us absolutely unintelligible an otherwise perfectly sound theory. This would be simply a translation of Marx into English, from the forms of Hegelian metaphysics to the forms of Hume’s metaphysics."
Sraffa (D3/12/4: 15) describing his intended lebensprojekt (via writingcapital)

Revisiting this text for next week’s Globalization class. So many great and powerful points within the first few pages.(via everydayhybridity)
A most important text in my own history, whatever meagre place that is in the history of thought. Good to remember that the formative works in one’s life are not necessarily sophomoric by virtue of their relative position in your - or a field’s - development.
