Chapter Summary

The appearance in English of Jacques Bidet’s outstanding study of Marx’s Capital, first published in 1985 as Que faire du ‘Capital’?, is an important intellectual event. It makes available to the English-speaking world the first book by one of continental Europe’s most important and influential left-wing political philosophers. The success of the journal (from whose editorship Bidet retired in 2005) helped to develop the networks necessary to hold what proved to be the first in a series of International Marx Congresses at the University of Paris-X Nanterre in 1995. The Leitmotif of all Bidet’s work can be summed up the title of his most recent book – ‘Explication and Reconstruction of Capital’. It is fair to say, however, that the balance has shifted increasingly from explication to reconstruction over the past twenty years.
