Sri Aurobindo turns history 'upside down'

[The student of history of sociology can hardly fail to note that the Marx-Sri Aurobindo controversy is a creative extension of a very old and interesting intellectual battle which has been going on for centuries and drawing into its arena distinguished thinkers like Hobbes, Rousseau, Vico, Hegel, Comte, Mill, and Morgan. -- D.P. Chattopadhyaya, Sri Aurobindo and Karl Marx: Integral Sociology and Dialectical Sociology, 1987]

Evidently, the tussle persists even today as the elite are unwilling to admit any teleological thesis. [TNM]
