As translator of the book I feel compelled to say something here, but I
don't know how to respond.  I did my best to translate clearly but I'm
not sure that is what is at issue.  I found the book challenging too but
profited from it very much.  There are both the Marxist and Spinozian
technical vocabularies at play here -- maybe they are posing some of the
problem.  Is that what is being asked here?
