Chapter Summary

The crisis of Marxism that marked the end of the twentieth century is scarcely comparable with those that preceded it at the turn of the previous century. Critical companion aims to participate in a reconsideration and reconstruction of Marx's legacy, in reformulating a theory for the present. While outlining the sociological and juridical aspects of the capitalist form of society, Marx himself mainly set out its economic dimension. He showed how this society is reproduced and revealed the logic whereby it gives rise to accumulation. His analysis is mainly directed to a study of the market mechanisms peculiar to capitalism. Marx's specificity consists in the fact that he not only described the structure of modern capitalist society, but also situated it in a general schema of history in line with the analytical grid of historical materialism, that he analysed its specific tendencies.
