Adolph Lowe
The Classical Theory of Economic Growth

Certainly when we turn our attention to growth processes, such as the rise of the industrial system or the secular development of capitalism, systematic mutations in the meta-economic conditions have to be taken into account as much as changes in the economic field proper.

Howard Mumford Jones
Republican Humanism

I conceive that the generation who created the republic had a philosophic interpretation of the cosmic process that conceived nobly, not ignobly, of man. They assumed that the state is composed of rational men--not Freudian man, or economic man, or biological man, or frightened man. Avoiding parochialism in time and space, they did not exalt the scholarship of humanists about the ethos of the humanities, nor mistake the aesthetic or critical enthusiasms of a few for the good sense of the many.

Karl Lowith
Man's Self-Alienation in the Early Writings of Marx

It is true that man's self-alienation is conditioned by the type and degree of development of the material conditions of production, by the division of labor, and by the sum of the concrete conditions of his life. But these conditions are structurally united in the social nature of man, who is his own world and whose self-consciousness is a world-consciousness.
