Let's see: I submit a post with the title of this subject line about
the latest research on the comparison of Jiangnan and England in the
18th century and the exploitation of Africans in the early modern
Atlantic trading system and Eldred insults me for my cramped, narrow
horizons. Or was it Eldred's own that he feared facing?  What should
this list be discussing--Heidegger's appropriation of the ancient
Greeks, misreadings of Eliot, or idiosyncratic interpretations of
Decartes? Why bother with histories of modes of production, what
Andrew Levine would call the natural kinds in Marx's theory of
history? Or new work on Marx's theory of money?
