Re: [OPE] Is 'dialectic' a scientific, pre-scientific or pseudo-scientific concept?

 Hi Dave Z,

this is a good provocation. As you know, unlike you,  I lean more to the first statement. Dialectics is the only scientific concept today.
Can you please give some reasons to justify your claim that dialectics is pre or even pseudo-scientific?

Hi Dogan. Let me throw in a theoretical question that is serious to some 
philosophers, Marxist ones included: 

   Is 'dialectic' a scientific, pre-scientific or pseudo-scientific 


Personally, I lean more toward the two latter classifications.
