Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an introduction to part one of the book Time in Marx: The Categories of Time in Marx's Capital. What is usually called 'value' is both a language and a logic. Value, the objectivity of intersubjectivity, is both what links together labours that are executed independently from one another, and the movement of reorganisation of the social division of labour, so that its relation with a supposedly quantifiable labour is the relation of an insurmountable tension, real and internalised. Thus, by straying very slightly from Marx's text, one can discover in his work the efficient and living notions of a non-equilibrium economics. The part critically analyses the simple circulation of capital, that is, of capital such as it appears in the blinding light of circulatory naivety. It concentrates on the time of production such as it appears in the productive process of capital.

Keywords: Marx's Capital; non-equilibrium economics; simple circulation; time of production
