It should now be clear to the reader that the approach of Uno and Sekine is not simply one more contribution to the tradition of Marxian discourse, but instead constitutes a major reinterpretation. Political economy, dialectical materialism, historical materialism and their interrelations are understood differently from any of the perspectives that have been developed within Western Marxism. Furthermore, I have argued that the Unoist approach is superior to any that has been developed within the West not only in being more scientific but also in overcoming many of the unresolved oppositions and polarities that we find in the Western tradition.
