Then we are in more agreement than it might seem since I
also  believe that  a "real"  understanding of phenomenon 
is  socially constructed.   Within a class society, all 
understandings are socially constructed.

When examining the topic in question, Marx looked  at
how that subject was conceived in the minds of bourgeois
agents, didn't he?    After all, isn't an examination of
the praxis of the bourgeoisie a part of the development of 
critique from a revolutionary perspective?

In solidarity, Jerry
