Dear Discussants,
May I intervene? Even if the subject of capital is "capitalism", it is still
necessary to unfold the "capital" concept from the simplest "commodity" showing
the logical necessity for such unfolding, which is not historical but logical
genesis of capital. Even the emergence of the proletariat is also to be expounded logically, from the working of the law of value in simple commodity production, rather than from the primitive accumulation (bloody violences, etc).
Otherwise, capitalism cannot be seen as a historical stage in the human prehosor, in the prehistory of human-being.
