Yeah, I never had much of an understanding of dialectics, and unfortunately I don't speak Russian. Nathan Larson (talk) 13:47, 31 October 2013 (MSK)
Nathan, nobody have much of understanding of dialectics, because this is a kind of sophisticated charlatanianism (see for example, Popper's paper: However, at Soviet time marxists used it as a main instrument for forcing out logic, which they called "old-fashioned logic". I expected that there were investigations on this topic, but I can't find them. :( Eozhik (talk) 13:58, 31 October 2013 (MSK)
I see some stuff about dialectics here, here, here, etc. Did you do a keyword search of Mises did address the topic. But I never spent much time studying it, partly because people hardly ever bring the topic up in debate. Nathan Larson (talk) 18:54, 31 October 2013 (MSK)
Nathan, thank you very much! No, I didn't try to find this at, I don't know why. I am reading this, thank you again! Eozhik (talk) 09:56, 1 November 2013 (MSK)
Nathan, I've just read what you suggested. You know, I am afraid, it is not enough for persuading people in Russian Wikipedia that the attempts to replace logic by dialectics in the USSR were connected with the idea of polilogism... Moreover, I faced difficulties in explaining that Marx and Engels were keen of this idea. The counter-evidence was as follows: "since you can't give a quotation where Mises says that what Engels told about dialectics was a result of his polylogism, then you can't mention Engels in this context". I had a hope that maybe somebody else in the Austrian school wrote something on this topic... Do you know? Eozhik (talk) 20:13, 1 November 2013 (MSK)
Hmm, I found this article which mentions dialectics and polylogism. But I have no idea what it's talking about. Nathan Larson (talk) 23:46, 1 November 2013 (MSK)
