Sample text

The relationship between both methods of abstraction is an internally mediated dialectical one. Third, we should not make the mistake of believing that just because historical abstraction operates within more contingent conditions it is possible to say that it simultaneously operates within ‘open systems’. This is the fallacy of dualistic abstraction perpetuated by social theories interested in structure–agency questions. For example, the founder of critical realism, Roy Bhaskar, argues that the world can be divided into three constituent domains: the empirical, the actual and the real.

What Marx thereby implicitly suggests is that it is possible to isolate the most simple and abstract determination of any society in order to unfold that simple and abstract determination into the aforementioned ‘rich totality of determinations’. It would seem, therefore, that in the Grundrisse Marx does begin to demonstrate how the method of abstraction should seek to gain knowledge about the internal connections of a specific set of social relations like capitalist social relations even if he is not completely clear about Abstracting Dialogue 35 this.

From here we gain knowledge of ‘thinner abstractions’, which may, in turn, lead to knowledge about the primary, or simplest, determination(s) of a specific set of social relations such as that between capital and labour within capitalism. Once we have understood these more abstract and simple determinations we can see how they are reflected and refracted within the concept ‘population’. Only now can the concept ‘population’ be understood as inhering within a specific determining totality. But because we have traced the manifold determinations and mediations of the concept ‘population’, we can see how this seemingly innocuous concept represents a diverse number of determinations and mediations, the appearance of which may seem to bear little resemblance to the primary determination(s) of a specific set of social relations.
