Archive for the ‘Glossaries’ Category

Like my glossary for volume 1, this glossary of volume 2 of Marx’s Capital has been produced principally for purposes of self-clarification. It is thus not exhaustive of the terms and concepts Marx deploys in the volume, but it does try to deal with some of the most important, and sometimes the more difficult to grasp, of them. It is ‘interpretative’ in the sense that the definitions given are my recapitulated interpretations of what I think the terms mean, rather than direct textual citations of what Marx says or implies they mean (even if, given that the glossary has been prepared from my own reading notes, I may in places more or less closely paraphrase Marx). At some point in the future I do intend to produce a textual glossary of some of these terms using Marx’s own words – the two glossaries, the textual and the interpretative, would then complement one another. Where there are supporting references to Marx, however, these are indicated in blue: the work cited is Karl Marx, Capital, vol. 2 (Harmonsdworth, 1978). Main entries appear in bold red, as do cross-references to this glossary; cross-references to the glossary for volume 1 appear in bold green. Given that this glossary forms part of a longer term and ongoing project, I welcome being corrected on errors of fact, superfluity, omission, and interpretation; and I naturally welcome all other constructive comments.
