R48G: free agency versus causal theory

June 21st, 2017 · No Comments

The thesis of punctuated equilibrium applied to history doesn’t work in the manner adopted by marxists: the eonic effect shows the only way we can consider the idea and that requires seeing it not as an abstraction but as an empirical pattern in the past…marxism has eliminated free agency for deterministic theories (usually denying this is what is happening).

R48G: punctuated equilibrium, the fallacy of theory and revolutionary free agency…

The idea of punctuated equilibrium is ‘still another theory’ and won’t work as hoped because it specifies a dynamical process whose character remains ambiguous. It is much better to use our eonic model where we can descriptively perceive ‘punctuated events’ looking backward. We cannot apply the abstraction to a generalization that might apply to our future without violating our free agency. The eonic model automatically takes care of this kind of contradiction.
