Pathology, here as elsewhere, is a valuable aid of physiology’.

Enlightened by historical materialism, ‘men’ (particularly proletarian ‘men’) can proceed to make history ‘consciously’ rather than ‘behind their own backs’. This very brief and preliminary sketch suggests that three themes are definitive of modernist radicalism: they delineate the contours of the ‘great divide’ which modernist radicalism situates between its predecessors and itself.
