As a psychology major, I am a strong believer of the famous concept of “mind over matter”. To me, the brain is the most crucial organ in our body. With that being said, I disagree with Marx when he goes against Hegel’s theory on reality, which states that, “Reality is a product of our conceptual categories or consciousness and thus has no existence independent of our own construct of it.” What Hegel brings forth is that the mind is in control of one’s reality, and Marx contradicts him by saying that it is actually the other way around: one’s reality is in control of the mind. Marx’s counterargument is understandable due to the fact that that is indeed the case for weak-minded individuals. Society has trained us to be that way, but we cannot solely look at it that way. I don’t think that the brain’s capabilities should be undermined simply because society has put a restriction on our mental growth.
