I don't see how I could misrepresent since I didn't read, much less 
reply to your post.
But since I befuddled you.... isn't /materialisme aleatoire/ a 
fundamental rejection of dialectical materialism?  Wasn't a common theme 
of Althusser's works the attempt to rid Marxism of the idealism that 
crept in from Hegelian dialectics.


Now that I read it (for the first time) I don't see what anyone could 
find objectionable.  Calm down and reply to the right person before you 
post.  I'm fairly certain that I haven't ever misrepresented you since I 
can't recall any an particular incident where I bothered to engage with 
what you thought.
