**Overview:**

The Quillen homology of commutative monoids has been attacked
as a separate study (by Grillet,
Kurdiani and Pirashvili, and others), only loosely
related to the Quillen homology theories for other types of algebraic
systems. It turns out however to be subsumed by the theory for graded
commutative algebras. Grillet's theory is an example of the graded case
of Harrison cohomology.
