Sohn-Rethel, Alfred 1978 Intellectual and Manual Labour for value form

Uno gets a plus - for postponing the introduction of labour in the
exposition, and a minus for making abstract labour ahistorical and asocial

marx completely failed to grasp the ecological problematic. All the

value side is itself an issue. So all the stuff in the Marx/green debate is
relevant. The implications for 'a society of abundance' and what
presupposes that is obvious.
