on Bourgeois Political Economy and Hegelian Marxism.

Marx states somewhere in The Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts that Hegel has the same standpoint as bourgeois political economy. He says something like they both rest on appearance without understands how essence appears. This can be drawn out by comparing Marx’s criticism of bourgeois political economy with Hegelian Marxism. I will argue that Hegelian Marxism, like bourgeois political economy, never asked the question why or how fetishism/reifiction etc takes the form it does. Hence their lack of a theory of social constitution that can provide a bases for their theories of fetishism/reification/alienation etc.
