A quick reply on 'quasi-separation'. I'm glad you asked.

If you say that abstract labour is fully separate from / independent 
of concrete labour, then you are stuck with what must be a 
transhistorical concept of value.

If you say that abstract labour is a mere aspect of concrete labour, 
then, again, you are stuck with a transhistorical conception of value.

So 'quasi' it is!

Thanks (hope to make a fuller reply later),
