This chapter brings into proximity, but divides with a virgule, two passages of reading and thinking: the first, a close reading of a poem by Anna Mendelssohn that proposes a speculative description of her writing as a practice of ‘free dissociation’ that keeps open a space of radical imaginative freedom; the second, a set of reflections on Karl Marx’s complex relationship with logic, both in his own work and in the works of a number of philosophers and political economists. The two passages are fixed together in an uneasy and indeterminate correspondence, to let the thoughts of each one resound with and through the thoughts of the other.
