Necessity, nonnecessity, freedom

"...according to Marx, historical necessity cannot, in and of itself, give rise to freedom. The nature of capitalist development, however, is such that it can and does give rise to its immediate opposite -- historical nonnecessity -- which, in turn, allows for the determinate historical negation of capitalism." -- Moishe Postone, Time, Labor and Social Domination
