Lukács's two concepts of nature
the lived and the reified
The concept of nature in Lukács’s History and Class Consciousness is ambiguous. In some contexts, “nature” refers to a scientifc representation, while in other contexts it refers to the lived object of labor practice. The distinction is complicated by the role of the concept of reification in Lukács’s discussion of nature in both these senses. This paper endeavors to sort out the complexities and to show the relevance of Lukács’s concepts of nature to contemporary technical politics.
