Contribution to the debate on the dialectic philosophy concerning the mode of formation and transformation of matter, life, man and society

Friday 14 August 2009, by Robert Paris, Tiekoura Levi Hamed

"If simple mechanical change of place contains a contradiction, this is even more true of the higher forms of motion of matter, and especially of organic life and its development. ... life consists precisely and primarily in this—that a being is at each moment itself and yet something else. Life is therefore also a contradiction which is present in things and processes themselves, and which constantly originates and resolves itself; and as soon as the contradiction ceases, life, too, comes to an end, and death steps in. We likewise saw that also in the sphere of thought we could not escape contradictions."

Engels
