Debates over idealism versus materiaism are an idiotic waste of time. A better model for the left is the universal yet neutral model of the eonic effect which embraces in principle all the categories of world history. It stands in principle above any debate between idealists and materialists because each aspect is an incident in the process of eonic evolution: the reason is utterly simple: the eonic effect is a container of all the contradictions of world history and the debate over idealism and materialism in the early nineteenth century is an emergent dialectic inside it. Over and out. The eonic model is a framework that contains the histories of philosophical issues and thus turs them into evidence of its own unfolding.
