Marxism and materialist obsessions…

Bloch is an interesting figure but at this point, the focus on materialism versus idealism is not helpful on the left. Who cares, beyond people write more and more books flowing into a void?
The left needs a post-Marxist philosophical stance that can encompass opposites in the whole range of the history of philosophy. The issue now is the creation of a workable socialism and it needs a breadth of culture and history without the useless extremes of marxism.
The question of materialism is up in the air now in the age of quantum mechanics and field theory. The left doesn’t need to impose materialism and its dated scientism to create socialism.
