Marx’s study of the species being of humanity institutes itself as a science that
deals with value production and the relation of value to material reality. This
is obviously a metaphysical question, but the suggested approach is scientific.
Therefore, the science to be established in line with Marx’s precept ought
to operate with “philosophical material” but in a non-philosophical way.
Laruelle has furnished a rich conceptual apparatus (at once lexicological and
methodological) to make this type of science possible.
