La valeur économique comme modalité d'action chez Marx

Abstract : This work offers an interpretation of the category of economic value which is an alternative to the “economistic” reads of Marx. Instead of speaking of the “labor theory of value of Marx” and instead of questioning the veracity of this theory in terms of ability to predict commodity prices from what is stated in The Capital, we offer to focus on the form of economic value. We believe that it is possible to consider the form of economic value from the perspective of human action. Thus, the economic value would be the categorical reflection of a form of action characterized by the fact that men can’t behave vis-à-vis each other, vis-à-vis the natural world and vis-à vis the social world, without running a certain category of substance as a condition of possibility, as a mediator and as a principle of rationalization of their behavior. This understanding of the economic value involves taking into account the quantification of the substance in order to make operative most part of the interactions. This quantification can be seen as a social norm which is in the actions of men without it being, however, an intellectual act taking place “in their head”.
