The title "Reclaiming Marx's 'Capital'" makes me uncomfortable.

Is not the subtext for such a title itself a claim that the author knows
exactly what 'Capital' is about?

Are we so insecure in our understanding of 'Capital' as a work of living
scientific research?

Why not something more modest like "An Interpretation of Marx's 'Capital'"?
