Fine. But I guess most contributers to this discussion are talking of the
incorporation of subjectivity in a Marxist conceptualization. The value-form
approach of, eg Reuten & myself (1989) introduces subjects without subjectivity
at the level of the capitalist economy, just because we think that real
subjectivity has later to be introduced in order to conceptualise the market
reproduction of the value-form, competitive society, civil society & the state,
etc., and their reproduction.
