[Xmca-l] Quote from Marx & Engels collected works vol. 12



In Davydov's volume on generalization (p.119), he quotes Marx using the
word "oilier".  The citation is from Russian, but if anyone has the English
this will be fine.  Is this a correct quotation?  Is oilier given a meaning
or sense?

"Every form of society has a certain industry which determines the place
and the influence of all oilier industries, and whose relations therefore
also determine the place and the influence of all other industries.  This
is a general illumination, in which all other colors disappear and which
modifies them in their features.  This is a special ether that determines
the specific weight of everything real that is detected in it."
