Example text

Lefebvre’s second critique relates to the dialectical “system” constructed by Hegel: in systematizing philosophy Hegel arrests the flow of time, declares the process of “becoming” closed, thus shattering his own most valuable approach. This critique of practical power and the force of abstraction—of thinking, of writing, and of language—is a leitmotiv that runs through the whole of Lefebvre’s work. It also forms the basis of his biting, often furious attacks on contemporary philosophy and science, and, in his later works, on planning and architecture.
