Further on the Postone/Lukacs Homology.

In the final stretch of my thesis, which I started working on again today. Whilst revising my Lukacs chapter I came across his definition of abstract labour, which you could almost use as an epigram for Postone’s conception of it and Time, Labour, Social Domination:

‘abstract labour…becomes a category of society that decisively influences the objective form of things, including the movements of people within society, their relation to nature, and their possible relations of men with each other.’
