Hi Dave:

Well, I think that's probably true but there are other Marxian schools of
thought which eschew value theory in favor of what might
broadly be termed institutional analysis, e.g. social structure of
theory, a perspective which could not be said at all to be an entirely
capital-centered analysis.
