      I bought two copies of this book I gave one copy to my girlfriend We agreed to read it together We never did We broke up I still have a copy And so does she Karl Marx ruins relationships by putting undue pressure on them to perform I think, if I am ever to be in real a relationship again, I will have to work out my problems with Marxism first I will post an ad on craigslist It will say this Man with commitment issues and problems understanding the causal relationship between labour and commodity [...]

      Louis Althusser wrote a preface to a French translation of Capital and in it he gives lots of advice on how to read this book I recommend you read this book according to that advice, even if I didn t quite do that myself A big part of that advice is to not read in the order that Marx wrote You see, the first few chapters on the commodity are seriously hard going Much harder going than just about anything else in the book In fact, Althusser was pretty well just following Marx s on advice that the [...]

      Do you know how many pages this is 1152 And worth every leaf on the tree A must read for anyone willing or wanting to wax grand about capitalism Picture it My first semester in graduate school Day two My professor goes over the syllabus, week one Das Kapital Marx chps 1 15, 22, 27 etc I cry for three days lamenting the decision to pursue higher education Then I read that shit and my little world changes.

      9 12 2017 I manage to finish Marx s opus a couple days before the 150th anniversary of its first publication Per usual, I find the mere feat of powering through a great difficult book doesn t automatically lead to an increase in wisdom I ll have to cogitate on this one a while.Yes, it s a brilliant, messy thing Chapters of abstract algebra alternate with harrowing pieces of journalism and history Marx s exact thesis, if he has one, is often elusive Before reading it, I was under the impression t [...]

    5. Roy Lotz on said:

      Marx was a man badly in need of an editor For all of the financial, amiable, and intellectual support provided by Engels, one wishes that Engels had only he had been ruthless is cutting the fat from his partner s work This would have been easy enough at the time, but by now Marx s writing has acquired a sacred aura.The main meat of this bloated tome is all in the first few hundred pages Marx actually lays out his ideas in a very pleasing and pithy manner I wish the rest of the book was like thi [...]

    6. Luís C. on said:

      Great unfinished work of Karl Marx, Capital is the bible of the socialist and communist ideology Long, sometimes perilous, with some touches of redundancy in the way, the book nevertheless offers a vision of the still nascent industrial society in the West The alienation, labor exploitation, inhuman and devastating The theory of surplus value, the origin of the money and exchange, division of labor and the conflict between the owners of Labour and those of Capital, Karl Marx gives us the perspec [...]

    7. Erik Graff on said:

      I had long avoided reading Das Kapital because I thought it would be too mathematically advanced for me Taking courses with the Marxist philosopher and mathematician, David Schweickart, induced me to make the effort since his assignments and my own readings of Marx had already become pretty extensive and the avoidance of his most important text seemed silly So, on my own now, I began carrying the tome about in my backpack, reading most of it at Jim s Deli across Sheridan Road from the Lake Shore [...]

      Let us finally imagine, for a change, an association of free men, working with the means of production held in common.

    10. Chelsea Szendi on said:

      Vampires, monsters, fetishes Stick with Marx through the saga of the coat and the M C M and the rewards are so rich When he guides you from the realm of exchange into the realm of production, I dare you not to feel like you are involved in cracking an incredible mystery Because you are.

      First you get the primitive accumulation then you get the Linen, Then you get the Coats, Then you get the Capital, Then you Get the Labour, Then you get The Surplus Value, then you get the mechanization, then you get Surplus Value Tony Montana

    12. Kevin on said:

      I have been reading this book for way too long However, it has been a worthwhile experience, revealing the provenance of many leftist values that I may have had sympathy for, but admittedly did not fully understand because I lacked an understanding of origin Not saying I m a doctrinaire Marxist now, but that is exactly the whole point of reading Marx at this juncture in the state of leftist social theory politics To read it from an non dogmatic perspective I think if you do this, Marx has a lot [...]

    13. Annie on said:

      to be honest the only reason this book rates is because we have godfathers like David Harvey to illuminate it for us remember the footnote where he makes fun of Malthus for being a virgin real mature, KARL also you ll have to look elsewhere if you re looking for evidence of his toxic friendship with Freddy E fyi

    15. Drew on said:

      I don t remember when I started reading Capital with the assistance of David Harvey davidharvey , but its been a greater education than I could have imagined I cannot help but keeping many of Marx s theories in mind throughout my daily life Fetishism of the commodity, production of surplus value, class struggle over the working day, division of labor, struggle between labor and technology, creation of a surplus labor army, process of capital accumulation, primitive accumulation or accumulation b [...]

      Best way to start the year is finally reading the full text of Capital Vol.1 Previously read only bits and pieces of Marx s magnus opus eclectically notably the first chapter on commodities, the second part on the transformation of money into capital, the chapters on the labor process and the rate of surplus value, and the last part on primitive accumulation A great work that not only lays bare the workings of capitalism but also presents a forceful argument for the overthrow of such an exploita [...]

    17. Nandakishore Varma on said:

      I have not read this book, but am familiar with the gist of it Until recently, even though I share Marx s aversion of Big Capital in the hands of a Few Individuals, I had not appreciated the real impact.Every product has two values the intrinsic value of the product, created by the poor labourer, and the exchange value, which the capitalist sells it for usually much higher than the intrinsic value The capitalist pockets the difference, and grows fat like a leech on the life blood of the poor lab [...]

      El problema con El Capital no es tanto lo pesada que puede resultar su lectura que lo es , sino el hecho de que la teor a marxista, a la luz de la realidad, y como lo demostraran varias generaciones de economistas austr acos, tales como Menger, B hm Bawerk y Mises, resulta un error te rico No s lo su an lisis sobre la din mica capitalista es malo partiendo del equ voco de una teor a del valor trabajo que ha sido demostrada falsa , sino que sus ideas conducen a un entendimiento pobre de lo que se [...]

      This is the third time I ve read this book, and I m confident there will be a fourth, fifth, and even sixth reading This is the quintessential text for explaining how capitalism is predicated upon the rapacious exploitation of the working class.Although the review written below contains many errors, and was written during a state of extreme inebriation, I feel no compulsion to edit it Fair warning, I m writing this hung over.The first time I read this, I gave the book 4 stars, knowing it was a 5 [...]

      Just re pasting my old review, which I wrote a long time ago, coming down off mushrooms and a case of beer Fair warning, I m writing this hung over.The first time I read this, I gave the book 4 stars, knowing it was a 5 star work, but with 4 star writing I was wrong Oh so wrong Marx s writing merely reflects his dialectical and masterly way of contemplating, and few of us can dare to grow wings and fly up to such lofty heights of his genius and acumen Read, reflect, and re read Wait, then read a [...]

      In the beginning, God the first commodity created the heavens exchange value and the earth use value And so begins the materialist Bible, Das Kapital, which, if its abstract theoretical model is to be believed, and I think the case is much stronger for than against, it is the most important book of the industrial, i.e our, epoch The two greatest intellectual merits of this work are the discoveries of socially necessary labor time and the precise nature of surplus value, that is, that it is gener [...]

    22. Sean Sullivan on said:

      I think one of the great misconceptions about Capital is that it is dry and difficult Many people seem to think that reading it would be a chore Not true I think if you were to read it on your own or in a study group, you d find it funny, engaging and not all that hard It assumes perhaps a small amount of understanding of classical political economy Malthus, Smith, Ricardo, etc but not much I d say if you re going to read it, read it in a group, because some of the ideas need to be worked out, b [...]

    23. Zach on said:

      I bought this at the school book store, read the first part on Commodities and Money I read Capital on those mornings when I get up early to fish, except never make it outside, so not making much of a profit with no fish The next best thing to making a living is reading about Capital, although the book is really a tragedy and makes me sad.

    24. Maxwell on said:

      I m a dilettante with no formal expertise in economics, a self styled socialist and a sort of Marxist at least, I read a lot of Marx and I like what he has to say But I d never read Capital and undertook it for the same reason most in my situation probably do to anchor my politics in theoretical rigor To accord my stupid opinions legitimacy To energize my armchair communism via Marx s Capital, which is to this day the best account of capitalist processes I read the book alongside David Harvey s [...]

    25. Guttermutter on said:

      Marxism is one of those things where you think you know what it s all about as long as you read the Sparknotes and get the key terms Marx wrote the Capital to underline that his theory and vision isn t just a bunch of words, but a living, developing dialogue with a system that thrives when its benefactors close their eyes and which meets its victims disguised as random acts of failure and violence.Like a dog on acid, Marx bites down on the concept of value , which chase turns into a variegated a [...]

    26. David Anderson on said:

      I had only read excerpts of Marx s Magnum Opus in the past, despite considering myself a Marxist It was well worth the effort The literary quality of the text is higher, less dry and entertaining than you might expect Gothic references to vampires and spirits abound Nor is Marx the narrow economic determinist that he is often portrayed to be his thinking is nuanced and complex than that In fact, I think I now have a much better appreciation for the dialectical method than I did before the thes [...]

      I made the absolute horror of a mistake of listening to this on audio Once I started I just couldn t put it down due partly to the amazing nature of the book, and partly to my own neuroses The reasons not to listen to this on audio 1 Too many citations to juggle easily on the audio format 2 Multiple readers is irritating no thank you librovox 3 You will hear the words cotton, capital, trade, exchange, sterling, and Loco Cito so many times on the audio book that you will be saying them in your dr [...]
