Hi Michael H: Thanks for the additional information. I agree, of course, that the chronology is "a little bit more complicated". In simplifying the context of my question, I over-simplified -- because the exact chronology wouldn't answer the question I asked which concerned _why_ the chronological ordering of Marx's drafts was the way it was. You write that it was "determined by different factors" , but this is rather vague. What were the different factors and what do we _know_ about their relative importance? In solidarity, Jerry >> The precise order of writing was determined by different factors: >> what was clear for Marx and, what was an open question (for example that >> Marx in 1864 started with book III after finishing book I may have had >> the reason, that he wanted to write down something what was clear to >> him, but then he realized, that he also needed some results of book II >> and therefore he interrupted the work on book III) and especially in the >> seventies the wish to publish vol. 2 determined Marx to concentrate >> on book II. >> >What do we know about _why_ Marx wrote the drafts in the order in >> >which he did?
