REFERENCE: Müller, Rudolf Wolfgang. Geld und Geist: Zur Entstehungsgeschichte von Identitätsbewußtsein und Rationalität seit der Antike. Frankfurt am Main: Campus Verlag, 1977. 423 pp.

Note: Müller's theory of the relationship between philosophical abstraction and social organization rivals those of Alfred-Sohn Rethel and George Thomson. According to this review, Müller is constructing a metatheory of scientific thought “as a reflection of the development of commodity production.”
