Existential dialectical materialism is the philosophic synthesis of Marxism (dialectical materialism) and existentialism, providing the delineation of a new philosophic paradigm based on a more adequate view of humanity and the nature of human reality.
Being and Dialectic sets forth the core principles of the philosophy. Among other insights, the new and intriguing law of politicoeconomic entropy is shown to naturally arise from the philosophy’s deductive structure.
Existential dialectical materialism is at once both a philosophy of revolution and conservativisim, being the rational result of the necessary dialectic development of political-philosophical theory and thought
Human Dasein-for-itself alights on the scene as a rational consequence of the dialectic negation of being-in-itself existing qua affirmation, thereafter functioning as the sole agent provocateur of both the limitation and continuing execution of the dialectic in its absolute and existentialist modes, respectively...It follows from this that human-based politico-economic systems' lifecycles develop as a recursive one-off. This quintessentially human nature and condition portends the eventual ruin of any such absolutist pseudo end-state. Thus, these end-state polities and their ruling elites are left facing the ever-present actuality and chronic threat of individual revolutionary activity along with the reality of the imminent dawn of social revolution and politico-economic collapse.
