Abstract

Abstract In his critique of Ayn Rand: The Russian Radical, David MacGregor argues that my book trivializes dialectical method. He fails to notice the many nondialectical assumptions that pervade contemporary social theory and practice. Dialectics, as a context?sensitive methodological orientation, can provide tools for a better grasp of systems and processes in the real world?the goal, as I understand it, of the ?post?libertarian? approach Jeffrey Friedman advocates.
