Chapter Summary

Capital proposes an 'economic' theory. This chapter distinguishes three main orientations. First, the continuation of the Hegelian tradition, especially around the Frankfurt school, in Germany, but also in Italy, France, Central Europe, Japan, and elsewhere. Second, the author refers to as that of historical materialism, which is particularly active in France, especially via the Althusserian school. Third, the group of analytical Marxism, which attests to the influence of Marxism in Anglo-American culture. The publication of the Grundrisse (in 1939-41) was to play a significant role in the specifically philosophical interpretation. A certain number of problems attach to the Hegelianising approach in so far, at any rate, as it draws its inspiration for the interpretation of Capital from the Grundrisse.

Keywords: analytical Marxism; capitalism; Grundrisse-style interpretation; historical materialism; philosophical interpretation
