Marx After Growth #3 The History of Accumulation

29 Nov , 2020  

The History of Accumulation

In the previous lecture on what’s been called the ‘esoteric’ Marx, I explored a subterranean current of Marxian thought distinct from the ‘exoteric’ Marx of the workers’ movement. This ‘esoteric’ Marxism, sometimes called value-form theory, finds its roots in the abstract conceptual logic of Marx’s critique ...

The Esoteric Marx

This second lecture picks up on some key points from the first lecture to explore the ‘esoteric’ Marx, a subterranean current of Marxian thought distinct from the ‘exoteric’ Marx of the workers’ movement. I therefore want to begin with a recap of those aspects of Marx’s work ...

27 Nov , 2020  

This four-part lecture series asks what the Marxian critique of political economy can tell us about the twenty-first century, an historical moment marked by deindustrialization, economic stagnation, growing labour superfluity, and a political landscape in which the figure of the worker no longer occupies the central space it once did. ...

Use value stimulation: Making the ShoppingMall distinguishable from the rubbish dump

25 Nov , 2020  

Apart from the distinction between the supra-historical dimension of use value, which is expressed in the fact that there are objects that satisfy needs at all, and the dimension of the thoroughly capitalistically structured use value qua value abstraction (which Adorno constantly denounces as a sham in his writings critical ...

Alfred Sohn-Rethels große Idee und ihr Problem

23 Nov , 2020  

Das Maß als blinder Fleck der Kapitalismuskritik

Frank Engster und

Andreas Schröder

Sohn-Rethel hat sich zur Mächtigkeit seiner erkenntniskritischen und an Kant orientierten Fragen nach der „Bedingung der Möglichkeit“ von empirisch reiner Geltung und mithin von neuzeitlicher Naturwissenschaft in kein adäquates Verhältnis setzen können. Das lag nicht an seiner Antwort, ...

A Short Note on Sohn Rethels Realabstraktion

23 Nov , 2020

Ökonomie und technische Systeme: Die andauernde (weitergeführte, ununterbrochene) Kolonisierung

14 Nov , 2020  

Es ist wesentlich zu erkennen, dass die Ökonomie von den Ökonomen (den vorherrschenden, neoklassischen) selbst als eine Art „technisches Super-System“ betrachtet wird. Niemals ist vom „Kapitalismus“ die Rede, oder gar von der „herrschenden Finanzwelt“, da ist nichts, was „politisch“ analysiert werden könnte; die Ökonomie ist einzig und allein „Technik“, allumfassend. ...
