For elaborating his dialectic Hegel was deeply indebted to the 17th century philosopher Baruch Spinoza. Hegel was wont to say "One is either a Spinozist or not a philosopher at all." When in Capital Marx wrote that Hegel's dialectic is the "source of all dialectic," he, too, identified that dialectic with Spinoza's "all determination is negation."

What is the continuity and discontinuity between Spinoza and Hegel? How does it relate to Marx's concept of the future as he spelled out his philosophy for the capitalistic epoch as the fetishism of the commodity?
