Example text

To say that man’s physical and mental life is linked to nature simply means that nature is linked to itself. (1975[1844], p. 328) Elsewhere Marx would emphasise labour as that which mediated the relation between society and nature: Labour is, in the first place, a process in which both man and Nature participate, and in which man of his own accord starts, regulates, and controls the material reactions between himself and Nature. He opposes himself to Nature as one of her own forces, setting in motion arms and legs, head and hands, the natural forces of his body, in order to appropriate Nature’s productions in a form adapted to his own wants.

If nothing else, he explained, ‘the “vital principle” . . is at least a sort of label affixed to our ignorance’. Because it gives us a world filled with contingency, and calls attention to that which is permanently suspended between being and non-being, it perhaps best names a discipline of thought (Greco, 2005; see also Stengers, 1997), that in turn informs an ethical relation to life and a political orientation. What this helpfully illuminates are the close connections between how one answers a set of ontological questions about the ‘nature’ of the material world, and what one holds as a set of ethical and political commitments.
