Machinery and Validity in 1861-63.

Interesting note qua the importance of social validity in many of the value-form interpretations of Marx as well as the importance other newer interpretations of Marx have put in the Fragment on Machines.

“With machinery — and the mechanical workshop based on it — the domination of past labour over living labour assumes not only a social validity — expressed in the relation of capitalist and worker — but so to speak a technological validity.” MECW 34 P. 31
