I saw this:
Why is Ayn Rand's Objectivism philosophy dismissed by academics? "However, her well-documented ideological struggle against Marxism undermines her own argument again here; the Marxist dialectic underpins the Continental approach to philosophy. If we are to take Rand's conclusions seriously, which is to say that if we take her particular anti-Marxism to be the point she is making, then she is using the Marxist dialectic to completely disavow Marxism, thus ending the dialectic."
So does this mean if one disagrees with or rejects Marxism in at least some way, e.g. rejects the notion of a "classless stateless society [a type of anarchy]" as the ultimate and best form of society for humanity, or reject the notion that the economic structure determines everything (economic determinism), or rejects the Marxist theory of social evolution, then the whole edifice of the Continental philosophy collapses? Its "social critique" element has not a leg to stand on? Can "Continental Philosophy" survive if one were to do at least one of:
reject the notion of a "classless stateless society" as the best form of society, or as incompatible with human nature or otherwise unattainable,
reject the notion that economics determines all other social structure,
reject the progression tribe -> slave -> feudal -> capitalism -> socialism -> Communism evolutionary theory
? How much of Continental Philosophy remains if one applies one, two, or all three of the above rejections?
