    That sounds like earth system science, which is a pretty big deal in science these days, what with global warming and all that.

    Not to anticipate the next bit, but hard science itself does fairly well when it comes to looking at the world dialectically, both in terms of its method and in terms of conclusions… though it often doesn't know it and would usually abjure the term if it were suggested.

    How would you differentiate dialectical materialism in the physical, biological and social sciences from (weak or strong) emergentism? Or is this something you would prefer to address in future installments?

    I'm not going to go into this in massive detail but I will be touching upon it in future installments.
