Yes, I read it five or so years back. I remember being somewhat skeptical
about how Meikle relates the logical to the historical development of the
value form. But I learned a lot from it, so when I saw his Aristotle's
Economic Theory in the bookstore, I bought it and read it soon thereafter.
I again learned quite a bit. His contribution to the Cambridge Companion is
also profound, if I remember correctly.

All the best, Rakesh
