Right…I’m just going out on a limb here, but I think maybe Marxists get it wrong in that they don’t tend to read Hegel?
I feel, in reading the Lordship/Bondage (Master/Slave) part of Phenomenology of Spirit, and the “universal moment, the absolute melting away of everything stable” when discussing pure negativity (to live as not-oneself, in negation, in lack) is perhaps where Marxism is a complete misinterpretation of Hegel? The sentence I quote above, there is a similar sentence in the Communist Manifesto if memory serves and perhaps if Marxists looked outside literal political parameters and instead observed Marx’s writings as metaphysical pieces, perhaps they wouldn’t be so wrong most of the time?
Am I wrong in thinking that? It just seems to me in reading Hegel that Marx may have misread Hegel (a really easy mistake), or Marxists misread Marx.
