Jerry (and others!):

Do you know who is (are) the first author(s) who started to interpret
systematically Marx's presentation as a sequence of "levels of abstraction"?

Who have discussed this point? Who are the critics of this view?

What is the difference between this and the "assumption dropping" idea of,
e.g. the neoclassical modelling methodology?

Thanks in advance!
