Marxian “science” provides just such a way of knowing and conceptualising the world abstractly, in the sense in which, for example, Mandel’s great book offers a rich and elaborated knowledge of that global world system, of which it has never been said here that it was unknowable but merely that it was unrepresentable, which is a very different matter.

Is there a form of enthusiasm that Shaftesbury finds unqualifiedly good?

He writes: [we] insist on others agreeing with our taste (Kant 1790, pp. 53.) a claim to validity for all men… (Kant 1790, p. 51.) By contrast, Kant thinks that although we sometimes speak as if our judgments of the agreeable are universally valid (“Lamb tastes better with garlic”), in fact they are not: judgments of the agreeable appeal only to most but not to all men (Kant 1790, pp. 52–53).

Further, without the discerning and criticizing activ ity of thought, action would be impossible; and if action, then good action, the moral consciousness, duty. Imagination carries out this manipulation, allowing us to produce images of objects we have not seen in fact out of the images of things we have experienced, and thereby also generating images for intelligibles and prophecies.
