Mr.Iles' points elicit another 'circular' manifestation in the process of reading Marx. The question returns to the possibilities of reading the texts, not without the burden of history - as you Rainer quite rightly point out, given the material circumstances - but without recourse to institutionally determined discipline. This circular frame may perhaps be broached by reading outside the frame?? I unfortunately do not have the means to demonstrate this. However, we again return to not just the economic, social or revolutionary potential of Marxism, but the legacy of the academic discipline in itself. I stress again the idea of reading 'outside' the disciplinary frame but perhaps not 'without' it, as Hegel aptly demonstrated. Any move beyond the limit is in itself a measure of that limit. I would like to pose the question as to whether the opportunity really does exist to ideologically determine a non-space in which to read?? .....Art & Language...........
