Transcript UNDERSTAND UNDERSTANDING in iif e is The thing that human beings do most breathe. When breathing stops life stops. Next to breathing the thing that we do most is think. During all our conscious hours from childhood to old age we are thinking, yet only a small percentage of the people understand the thinking process. That is to say, few understand the nature of the human brain and its function. It was a German workingman, Joseph Dietzgen, a tanner, who laid bare the "mystery" of the mind. It is he who offers to the working class, to use his own term, an understanding of understanding. He not only strips the mind of its mysticism, but he also exposes the shortcomings of the mechanical materialists who view the mind as matter rather than as a functioning that arises therefrom. Karl Marx, in appreciation of Dietzgen's contribution to proletarian science, introduced him to the International Workingmen's Association (the First International) as OUR PHILOSOPHER. Just as Alfred Russell Wallace and Charles Darwin arrived at practically the same conclusions, unknown to each other, in the field of Biology, so did Marx, Engels and Dietzgen arrive at the Materialist Conception of History. The first two, working together, came to their conclusions along historic and economic lines. Joseph Dietzgen meanwhile arrived at practically the same position along philosophical lines. His philosophy works itself clean beyond the speculative point, to a basis of knowledge through an understanding of the relationship of sense perceptions to the mind, to an understanding of Understanding. He works philosophy out to its end, its Positive Outcome. Dietzgen*s two volumes, Philosophical Essays and The Positive Outcome of Philosophy, should be read by all students of Marxism. They give a more complete touch to a proletarian education. Cloth bound, each $1.50 postpaid. CHARLES H. KERR & COMPANY CO-OPERATIVE BOOK PUBLISHERS - - CHICAGO t
