Heinrich on Marx’s State Theory after “Grundrisse” and “Capital”

Here’s an interesting conference paper of Heinrich’s on the development of Marx’s theory of the state. I found it while looking for articles on Heide Gerstenberger’s Impersonal Power, which I plan on reading along with some of the other stuff on state derivation theory when my thesis is done.

      Cheers. Dunno why it didn’t work. Try cutting and pasting this http://www.theseis.com/synedrio/07_a_Heinrich.pdf I’ll look into fixing the link the evening after work.

        Thank you for the link!! I’m very interested in Heinrich’s work. I’ve only read his Kritik der politischen Ökonomie. Eine Einführung in spanish but found it very insightful and clear. Can’t wait to get the latest translation of him released in spanish: Wie das Marxsche Kapital lesen?

    Your welcome. Sad to say Wie das Marxsche Kapital lesen?
    Hinweise zur Lektüre und Kommentar zum Anfang von „Das Kapital“ hasn’t been translated into english. Let me know what you think of it.

    Maybe it is interesdting for you to read some spanish articles from the German marxism group “Exit”, former “Krisis”. Like Heinrich they belong to the so called “New Left” and have a interpretation of Marx, that is in many ways similar to Heinrich*s. But unlike Heinrich they believe in a final crachdown (“Zusammenbruch”) of capitalism due to oeconomic reasons, i.e. the crisis of the basic capitalistic category “worth”. Their head is wellknown german Marxist Robert Kurz. You’ll find it at

      Thanks for the recomendation. I have the galician translation of their Manifesto Against Labour, but not more. Don’t remember much of it so I think a re-reading must be done!

    • Kurz’s understanding of the substance of value is basically physiological, which places him outside of the tradition of the “Neue Marx-Lektüre” of Backhaus, Reichelt, Postone, Heinrich, etc. There is a superficial element of similarity in terms of the concentration on fetishism, but ultimately the Krisis/Exit conception of abstract labor as a physiological determinant is incompatible with a conception of abstract labor as a social form.

  5. P.S. HR would you be interested in setting up an online forum or email list to discuss the Gerstenberger book? Forming a reading group around it has been an unfulfilled ambition for me for a while.
