This book both argues for, and demonstrates, a new turn to dialectic. Marx’s Capital was clearly influenced by Hegel’s dialectical figures: here, case by case, the significance of these is clarified. More, it is argued that, instead of the dialectic of the rise and fall of social systems, what is needed is a method of articulating the dialectical relations characterising a given social whole. Marx learnt from Hegel the necessity for a systematic development, and integration, of categories; for example, the category of ‘value’ can be fully comprehended only in the context of the totality of capitalist relations. These studies thus shed new light on Marx’s great work, while going beyond it in many respects.
Christopher J. Arthur studied at the Universities of Nottingham and Oxford. For 25 years he taught Philosophy at the University of Sussex. He is a leading Marx scholar whose publications include Dialectics of Labour: Marx and his Relation to Hegel (Blackwell, 1986).
