Is the same as saying, "All that is real is rational; and all that is rational is real"? Sort of, except there isn't necessarily an apologetic content. Regarding the "(natural?) 'nature' of capitalism". Both natural language dialectics (e.g. systematic dialectics) and computational modelling make the assumption that the theoretical languages they employ (e.g., natural languages or programming languages) are adequate to their subject matter. -Ian.
