Abstract:

My goal in writing this article is to give a brief overview of the two volumes of Sartre's Critique of Dialectical Reason. After a brief introduction, I proceed in three stages that move from the abstract to the concrete. I thus trace the development of such notions as comprehension into the dialectic, praxis into singularity and incarnation, the practico-inert into the totalization-of-envelopment, and the enhancement of the notion of scarcity as a general historical condition into a collective free choice. I also suggest new divisions for Critique II.

Keywords: COMPREHENSION; INCARNATION; PRACTICO-INERT; PRAXIS; SARTRE; SCARCITY; SINGULARITY; STRUGGLE; TOTALIZATION-OF-ENVELOPMENT
