Hegel and Marx, at least, disagree with this:
"With such determinations through reflection [here: the mirroring of one
commodity's value in another] it is always a peculiar matter. This person, for

subjects. Conversely, they believe they are subjects because he is king." (_Das
Kapital_ Band I, MEW23:72)
