The Place of Money in Marx’s Theory of Capital

  • Adriano Lopes Almeida Teixeira
Chapter
Part of the Marx, Engels, and Marxisms book series (MAENMA)

Abstract

In this chapter, Teixeira seeks to locate the Marxist theory of money in relation to the major objective of his intellectual pathway, which was to unravel the mode of being of capitalist sociability through a theory of capital. Money in Marx appears not as an autonomous and self-sufficient entity of a specific monetary theory but as a theoretical moment prior to the advent of capital, a concept that, notwithstanding, assumes the protagonism of the process of social reproduction, modifying the forms of the existence of money and reconfiguring the elements of the Marxist exposition method, potentially making it capable of explaining the monetary and financial phenomena of contemporary capitalism.
