phenomena and as such its explanations are accountable to phenomena.  The
appeal to Hegel often draws a distinction between logic and cause so that
dialectical analysis is presented as non-causal and the necessities found
are presented as non-causal.  Explanation then is not causal or accountable
to phenomena as such.

This is not much of an expansion, but perhaps the target of my concern is
