Wolff, J; (1999) Marx and exploitation. Journal of Ethics , 3 (2) 105 - 120.

Full text not available from this repository.


The discussion of the adequacy of Karl Marx's definition of exploitation has paid insufficient attention to a prior question: what is a definition? Once we understand Marx as offering a "reference-fixing definition in a model" we will realise that it is resistant to certain objections. A more general analysis of exploitation is offered here and it is suggested that Marx's own definition is a particular instance of the general analysis which makes a number of controversial moral assumptions. © 1999 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
