The excerpt begins:
This is just the beginning to Lordon's bold book, which uses the author's in-depth analyses of Marx and Spinoza to call for a rethinking of capitalism and its transcendence on the basis of the contemporary experience of work.
It is true that of all the desires it harnesses, capitalism begins with money—or rather with bare life, life in need of reproduction. For, in a decentralised economy with a division of labour, material reproduction passes through the gateway of money. This mediation is not purely a capitalist invention: the division of labour, and the monetary market exchange that accompanies it as it deepens beyond a certain threshold, have developed slowly over centuries.
