Materials for the Reconstruction of Marx's Theory of Value

I.

In the literature of social science, no other text is known whose formal structure and substantive meaning are as controversial as the first four chapters of Capital. Marxist accounts of the theory of value, with few exceptions, would like to leave no doubt that the derivation of value is clearly and distinctly, as it were more geometrico accomplished. One and the same text, whose clarity and distinctness seem to be immediately evident to some, is regarded by others as the opposite of clarity and distinctness: as dark, confused, contradictory. Böhm-Bawerk considers it "completely impossible that this dialectical hocus-pocus was the reason and source of conviction for Marx himself. A thinker of Marx's caliber - and I esteem him a thinking power of the very first rank - could not possibly have searched along such a bent and unnatural path, he could not possibly have stumbled into all the described logical and methodological errors one after t

Zuvor: Die Anfänge der neuen Marx-Lektüre

Trifft der Zusammenbruch des theoretischen und realen »MarxismusLeninismus« - d. h. der marxistischen Orthodoxie überhaupt - nicht auch die Grundprinzipien der Marxschen Theorie, so daß selbst in einer modernisierten Gestalt die Marx-Lektüre buchstäblich gegenstandslos geworden ist? Dies schien in der Tat der »dominierende Diskurs«;1 in scheinbar »betäubender Einstimmigkeit« wurde darauf gedrungen, daß Marx »tot sei, auch tot bleibe« und tot bleiben müsse. Doch solcherlei »Beschwörungen«2 fanden sich nahezu ausschließlich in der politischen Tagesliteratur, kaum in der wissenschaftlichen. Hier erfährt gerade in jüngster Zeit die Marxsche Theorie sogar von Autoren Zuspruch, die sich, wie Jacques Derrida, als »Nicht-Marxisten«1 begreifen. So insistiert auch Karl Otto Hondrich darauf, daß die Marxsche »Analyse selbstzerstörerischer Prozesse des Kapitalismus (...) durch die Selbstzerstörung des Staatssozialismus keineswegs widerlegt wurde«.4 Und Derrida konstatiert, daß d

I Was ist Geld?

  • I. What is Money?

Geld ist eine Sache, deren Gebrauch nur dadurch möglich ist, daß man sie veräußert.

  • Money is a thing that can be used only by being alienated.

Dies ist eine gute Namenerklärung desselben (nach Achenwall), nämlich hinreichend zur Unterscheidung dieser Art Gegenstände der Willkür von allen andern; aber sie giebt uns keinen Aufschluß über die Möglichkeit einer solchen Sache.

Masks Could Help Stop Coronavirus. So Why Are They Still Controversial?

Confusing government advice at the start of the pandemic and cultural misgivings may have limited acceptance

Medical experts say even handmade or cheap surgical masks can block droplets emitted by speaking, coughing and sneezing, making it harder for the virus to spread.

# The Polemics About the Historicity of Jesus Christ in the Religious Studies of the Soviet Period
A. ANDREEV
*Abstract*
The article discusses the history of the controversy regarding the historicity of Jesus Christ in the academic literature of the Soviet period. It summarizes the position of the classics of Marxism-Leninism on the issue, which for many decades served for scientists as «starting point» in their studies. The article outlines the main work of Soviet religious scholars, historians and philologists, engaged in the research of the New Testament. It presents the basic arguments for and against a real earthly existence of Jesus Christ. It identifies the major milestones in the development of this issue throughout the Soviet period: the period from 20’s, which is characterized by the dominance of the ideas of the so-called «Mythological school» and tough anti-religious propaganda; the period from the late 50’s to early 80’s, when the mythological nature of Jesus was questioned; and the third peri
