Dear OPE comrades,
  Folks on this list are *so good* at tracking things down, that I could
not resist passing this one along.
  One of my colleagues at *Science & Society,* Barbara Foley, asks: where
does Marx (I think she would include Engels as well) put forward the
idea that history proceeds in spiral form -- i.e., negation of the
negation, with elements present in the first-posited stage returning, in
a "higher" state, in a third stage?
  Any references would be appreciated.
  In solidarity,
David Laibman
