Hi Dave Z:
I agree, but (without labeling them) it may be that the differences arise
because two (or more) different paradigms are being employed by
discussants. Whenever you have cross-paradigm discourse, conversation
and meaning can be frustrating. Here I am not thinking of a simple
Marxian vs. non-Marxian problematic, but rather (since the term was
used already in this thread) differing "foundational" (and methodological)
perspectives and intellectual traditions.
Would it be possible for all sides to initially state what are the merits of
their perspectives without at the same time identifying the (alleged)
_de_-merits of other perspectives?
In solidarity, Jerry
