Hang in there, Peter.  These things go through phases:  for a while
Bhaskar and the philosophy of science, for a while the labor theory
of value, for a while backbiting, whining and schoolyard-grade personal
abuse....  It'll be something else soon.

It could be argued that the teleological Aristotelian strain unmistakeably
present in Marx is one of the biggest problems in his work, leading to
essentialistic thinking about the proletariat, the inevitability of socialism,
etc.
