Jerry Levy in OPE-L 3111, who has been watching Rakesh for about five
years on more than one list, again tells Rakesh:

> *read Hegel*! :-)

OK! You like to go backwards:

"...you have to admit that Marx was close to Hegel just in respect to
those features which Hegel openly borrowed from Spinoza, because all this
can be found in the *Ethnics* and *Tractatus Theologico-politicus*.
These deep-rooted affinities are normally passed over in silence: they
nevertheless constitute, from Epicurus to Spinoza and Hegel, the premises
of Marxist's materialism". (Althusser, "Is it Simple to be a Marxist in
Philosophy?", p.178).
