Dialectic is more than an epistemological principle. More fundamentally, it is a form of praxis — consciousness, selftransformative activity — from which the logical principles of dialectic are then abstracted. Arising in dialog, dialectical praxis is directed toward emancipatory goals through its fidelity to negation. This essay concludes with speculation as to the conditions of nature and human beings that are compatible with the emergence of dialectic.
