Ahhh, ok...

Posted to What Are You Reading?




The title is kinda misleading. That's a title the site gave to that section. Thats actually a section (it might even be the whole chapter) of Chapter 5 of Specters of Marx entitled: "apparition of the inapparent: the phenomenological conjuring trick"...it sort of brings Derrida's reading of Marx to a close (where he goes over Marx's debate with Stirner in the German Ideology, the end of history rhetoric, the legacy of marxist theory) and gets into a neat discussion of the phenomenological aspect of Marx's conception of commodity fetishism in Capital ...for more on Marx's original position check out chapters 1 (especially section 4), 6 and 7 of Capital vol. 1
