"Logique du Capital" : essence, abstraction, universalité, objectivité, matière, foi me, rapport, contradiction dialectique, histoire, liberté... Outre l'introduction et les notes qui accompagnent chacun de ces textes, un index des options philosophiques détaillé contribue à faire de ce quantity un précieux tool de travail et de tradition.
