Review: Capital, Vol. 1: A Critical Analysis of Capitalist Production (Das Kapital #1)

User Review  - Rlotz - Goodreads

Marx was a man badly in need of an editor. For all of the financial, amiable, and intellectual support provided by Engels—if only he had been more ruthless is cutting the fat from Marx's work. This ... Read full review

Review: Capital, Vol. 2: The Process of Circulation of Capital (Das Kapital #2)

User Review  - Alessio Lerro - Goodreads

This book has of course not literary quality as it was not written for publication, but it is the natural continuation of Volume I. Te book is tough not because of its style but because it talks about tough stuff, especially the famous reproduction schema. Read full review

Page 196 - A spider conducts operations that resemble those of a weaver, and a bee puts to shame many an architect in the construction of her cells. But what distinguishes the worst architect from the best of bees is this, that the architect raises his structure in imagination before he erects it in reality.
Page 829 - The monopoly of capital becomes a fetter upon the mode of production, which has sprung up and flourished along with, and under it.
Page 815 - The discovery of gold and silver in America, the extirpation, enslavement and entombment in mines of the aboriginal population, the beginning of the conquest and looting of the East Indies, the turning of Africa into a warren for the commercial hunting of black-skins, signalised the rosy dawn of the era of capitalist production.
Page 816 - State, the concentrated and organised force of society, to hasten, hothouse fashion, the process of transformation of the feudal mode of production into the capitalist mode, and to shorten the transition. Force is the midwife of every old society pregnant with a new one.
Page 14 - And even when a society has got upon the right track for the discovery of the natural laws of its movement— and it is the ultimate aim of this work, to lay bare the economic law of motion of modern society...
Page 392 - The simplicity of the organisation for production in these self-sufficing communities that constantly reproduce themselves in the same form, and when accidentally destroyed, spring up again on the spot and with the same name — this simplicity supplies the key to the secret of the unchangeableness of Asiatic societies, an unchangeableness in such striking contrast with the constant dissolution and refounding of Asiatic States, and the never-ceasing changes of dynasty. The structure of the economic...
Page 778 - The so-called primitive accumulation, therefore, is nothing^ else than the historical process of divorcing the producer from the means of production.
Page 403 - Hitherto it is questionable if all the mechanical inventions yet made have lightened the day's toil of any human being. They have enabled a greater population to live the same life of drudgery and imprisonment, and an increased number of manufacturers and others to make fortunes.
Page 83 - ... social character of men's labour appears to them as an objective character stamped upon the product of that labour; because the relation of the producers to the sum total of their own labour is presented to them as a social relation, existing not between themselves, but between the products of their .J labour. This is the reason why the products of labour become commodities, social things whose qualities are at the same time perceptible and imperceptible by the senses.
Page 828 - That which is now to be expropriated is no longer the labourer working for himself, but the capitalist exploiting many labourers. This expropriation is accomplished by the action of the immanent laws of capitalistic production itself, by the centralisation of capital. One capitalist always kills many.
