»The fullest and best-documented survey of dialectical systems is still my
›Der Satz vom Widerspruch‹
contains all my later ideas without exception.«
[Further Buddhist Studies, p. ix]

»If they want to know
why I moved from communism to Buddhism
they may be interested in

»Like Rosa Luxemburg I see socialism as the restoration of the prehistoric
innocence and brotherhood of the human race, which in her thinking appeared
as primitive communism [Ur-Kommunismus] and in mine as perennial philosophy.
Our thesis was, however, against the canons of Soviet determinism and the naive
Soviet believe in the inevitability of progress […] What I had said was: Two
things may be the outcome of the breakdown of capitalism. Decaying
capitalism either results in socialism or in chaos & barbarism.«
