Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an introduction to part two of the book Time in Marx: The Categories of Time in Marx's Capital. The part first examines the cyclical and organic movement of capital, and shows the sense in which it is a remarkable application of the Hegelian method, an application that is far more developed and rigorous than in the Grundrisse. What, in this last work, Marx called 'the dialectic of capital' appears again in the first four chapters of the second volume of Capital: a conceptual dialectic whose understanding constitutes the 'key' for understanding Capital as a whole. The part then deals with the time of circulation in the strict sense of the term, and presents the analysis and the articulation of the notions belonging to this temporality.

Keywords: dialectic of capital; Grundrisse; Hegelian method; Marx's Capital
