Konstantin Bakradze insisted that there can be only one science of reasoning – formal logic – and those dialectics was intended by the founders of Marxism to be abroad philosophical science combining epistemology with ontology. Bakradze’s early work in the history of philosophy also concentrated on questions of dialectics. He criticized Engels’ adoption of the Hegelian view that motion is inherently contradictory, and he argued that one need not deny any of the three traditional laws of thought in order to understand motion and development. He also believed that the Hegelian idea of a system of dialectically developing and interpenetrating categories were the product of figurative and confused thinking.
