Argh. We spent a good 15-20 posts awhile back arguing just this. I was pointing out that your whole philosophy (and Hegel's) was a re-worked Aristotelian essentialism. You fiercely denied it and then you go and post this. You've blatantly just admitted to essentialism. Ugh, if I didn't respect you for the worthy opponent you are, I'd probably say very rude, insulting things like I do to Lark, SDF, and QX when they babble on and on..

: Deathy:Erm, no, because teh Doctrine of Essence is an idea that something doesn't exist, but by its not existing, or trying to come into existence, the historical dialectic moves forwards, capitalism is an Essence, a movement, but it tehrefore doesn't exist. Nice try.
