From: "Daniel Koechlin" <d.koechlin at wanadoo.fr>
> The Americans are decidedly anti-dialectic.

And that statement isn't?


A European here, and I'm not convinced the distinction is quite as you put 
it. Though maybe a useful way to think about it is the distinction between 
procedural and distributive justice. And yet I think these analyses of 
culture tend to be a bit, if not anti-dialectic, certainly non-materialist. 
A culture is not an expression of some national absolute spirit in 
development or some such, but it must derive from material causes. Not so?
