Welcome to Leftypedia
The aspiring online encyclopaedia dedicated to providing a coherent platform for leftist politics.

Leftypedia aims to document and propagate anti-capitalist theory from a variety of different tendencies, and thus contribute to a more unified leftist movement in which no opinion is misrepresented. For this it engages in direct analysis of primary sources. In addition it aspires to be a space for original leftist research and theorising.

Most interesting, however, is when we discover that the contradiction constitutes a gap inherent to the subject at hand. One that we cannot simply skip over, but that has to be integrated in the way we think about the subject. We may also find that two opposite concepts naturally necessitate each other, which is resolved by a move Hegel called sublation. (more...)
