Persistencies of the dialectic : three sites

In Bertell Ollman & Tony Smith (eds.), Dialectics for the New Century. Palgrave Macmillan. 358 - 372 (2008)
After speculation that the dialectic is as yet unrealized, a kind of "unfinished project," three areas in which the dialectic remains alive are outlined: 1) in reflexivity, in which the theory of ideology demands to be confronted with the contemporary theory and experience of "multiple subject positions"; 2) in historiography, in which the dialectic is not a philosophical position but a critical operation performed on traditional historical narrative; and, finally, 3) in contradiction, a structure the dialectic does not posit, but causes to emerge and to become visible in familiar and seemingly unproblematical situations (Brecht's "estrangement effect")
