Update on Schopenhauer, Marx….

Update: I will have to pass for the nonce on the rest of this interesting essay with a useful set of books listed at the end. The gulf between hoary transcendental idealism and William James is a challenge to a new synthesis…
Marx attacks idealism at the point where it becomes a reactionary factor in the wake of the reactionary Hegel. But there is no reason that socialism has to attack idealism any more than physics should reject mathematics as idealist. Marx wanted philosophy in a practical form related to economic radicalism. Attacking idealism is a dated battle now
