http://platypus1917.org/category/pr/issue17-pr/ I would start right here (issue 17) with the introduction.

In class right now so I can't write out a summation, but the pieces aren't very, very long. I'm pretty sure Postone isn't actively involved with the project, but yes, former students of his were the impetus behind the initial Chicago reading group.
