Thou busy nurse…” (Ann Yearsley Poems Addressed to Sensibility, 1787). , “Thy valued image in my aching mind…The blow that sever’d two congenial souls” (Ann Yearsley Poems Addressed to Sensibility, 1787). , “Come thou unconquer’d pow’r! that aid’st the line, And boldly bidd’st the wild idea rise, Rush on my sense!

There is evidence to suggest that alongside this concept of nature as dystopian, Promethean, Marx’s position on the question of nature also articulated echoes of romantic eco-centrism. Explanations for this oscillation are enigmatically sparse. Nevertheless several writers bring to the fore Marx’s dual view of nature as being consistent with his critique of Hegel’s dialectic. Of significance here is Alfred Schmidt’s (1971) The Concept of Nature in Marx. According to Schmidt, the Germany of the 1850s provides some indication of why Marx’s consideration of human lxiv Prologue relationship with nature is surprisingly manifold and dimensionally complex.

While for Democritus the atom’s form “begins and ends with its materiality”, for Epicurus the essence of the atom exists in spiritual form (ibid). To this end, Epicurus discounts and refuses to preference material conditions over subjective representations and appearances. Neither the atom nor its anarchic declinations are the determined outcome of empirical conditions indexed to an objective material world. Rather, Epicurus postulates that we enquire into the subjective properties of the atom to appreciate its inherent indeterminacy.
