WHO KNEW?

Forty-seven boxes did it, so I turned my attention to stuff crammed into my office closet.  In a box otherwise filled with a lifetime of offprints,  I surfaced a book entitled Knoiwledge and Politics, edited in 1989 by Marcelo Dascal and Ora Gruengard of Tel Aviv University.  In it I found an essay I had rotally forgotten writing, called "Absolute Fruit and Abstract Labor:  Remarks on Marx's Use of the Concept of Inversion."  It was inspired by the early hilarious book by Marx and Engels called The Holy Family.  A quick glane suggests that it is a version of part of Moneybags Must Be So Lucky.

The name Marcelo Dascal rang a bell. I turned not to google, but to my bookshelves, and, since I remembered the general context where the name was relevant to me, I was able to quickly find the book I remembered. It's called Leibniz. Language, Signs, and Thought, published in 1987.

That he didn't call it Leibniz's Theory of Mental Activity is no doubt unfortunate.
