Most readers of Capital come to it with a 'tool kit' of prejudices acquired from their immediate political and social milieu, (and one of course influenced by the dominant society), a 'tool kit' usually imbued with various 'hard-headed' ideas about an early and a late Marx, about Marx as being a completion of the political economy of Smith and Ricardo (and not the critique of political economy, as the sub-title of his book suggests), that this late Marx was and economist in the way that Keynes or Milton Friedman are (in fact) economists, and so on.
