Why dialectics? : why now?

In Bertell Ollman & Tony Smith (eds.), Science and Society. Palgrave Macmillan 338 - 357 (2008)
Dialectics has to do with how the "bigger picture", both spatially and temporally (past and future), enters into and affects whatever we perceive directly and immediately. All the categories associated with dialectical thinking help bring some part of this bigger picture, to which we all belong, into focus. Special attention is given here to how to study the socialist/communist future that lies "concealed" inside the capitalist present as a necessary part of the dialectical analysis of capitalism.
