And I take his point in appealing to a logic of exposition is exactly to show that if we keep stumbling over surprises, as VFT finds in Capital, ch. 1, then we have a problem. Or is that just with a logic that is linear? That is, supposing a presentation that was dialectical, could we find the insufficiency of each stage to comprehend its presuppositions a kind of surprise that drove forward the immanent logic of the argument so that it constituted a move from surprise to surprise, dialectically sublated, so to speak? Howard what do you mean by a linear logic? Do you mean the same thing as a monotonic logic? I am skeptical that the Hegelian arguments are logical developments from a given starting point. Wherever you have surprise, you have new information. This must have been introduced from outside as a hidden additional premise.
