Alfred Schmidt on the Concept of Knowledge in the Critique of Political Economy

Andres was kind enough to pass along the attached pdf of a poor translation of Alfred Schmdit’s Zum Erkenntnisbegriff der Kritik der politischen Ökonomie. A new translation is in the works. In the meantime, enjoy Schmidt’s distillation of a number of essential points in the Critical-Theoretical reading of Marx, such as the following:

“Das Kapital, far from being a call to hasty action, is the most thorough and comprehensive attempt made for some time “to lay bare the conomic law of motion of modern society”, in other words to view the “evolution of the economic formation of society …. as a process of natural history”
