Alfred Sohn-Rethel - Intellectual and Manual Labour

This book demonstrates that the conceptual form of thinking of philosophy and science can be traced outside the immanency of the mind and, in fact,to what Marx call the 'commodity abstraction' which is the key to the formation of societies in which production is carried on for exchange. This is the novel element in this book: the view that abstraction is the vehicle of a historical process in time and space, by the agency of human action, not human thought.
