Overview

The contributors to this stimulating collection of thoughtful essays examine the philosophical principles and logical structure underlying Marx's economic theory in Capital.

The essays deal with many methodological issues including: the meaning of dialectic logic, the relation between Marx and Hegel, the historical specificity of Marx's concepts, the emphasis on social forms, the commodity as the starting point of Capital, the theory of money, the distinction between capital in general and competition, and Marx's critique of bourgeois economics.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Addresses the philosophical principles which underlie Marx's economic theory in "Capital", arguing that a proper evaluation of Marx's theory, and especially its logical coherence, requires an understanding of his theory in terms of its own logical structure. Deals with methodological issues including the meaning of dialectic logic, the relation between Marx and Hegel, the theory of money, and Marx's critique of bourgeois economics. Also appraises Marx's theory in terms of Lakatos' methodology of scientific research programs. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
