Title
The methodological rationale of Thomas Sekine: dialectical escapes from orthodoxies and the marxian political economy
Author
Abstract
The unique conceptual status of Thomas Sekines approach to Marxs Capital and capitalism, heavily indebted to Kōzō Unos work, will be analyzed by setting against its own theoretical counterparts, orthodox dialectical materialism. It will also be shown that Sekines critique of dialectical materialism differs from other neo-Hegelian perspectives or Althussers anti-Hegelian structuralism. These comparisons unearth Sekines concealed epistemological preoccupations: totality, subsumption of labor, self-commodification, historical indeterminacy and the logico-historical error. Last, Sekine also considered neoclassical economics as another form of unfounded orthodoxy both in conceptual and empirical terms, which he emphasizes in his analysis of the current phenomenon of financialization.
