In Representing Capital, Fredric Jameson distinguishes two stages of inquiry present within Marx’s magnum opus. The first is the critique of the equation. The second is the phenomenology of production. The distinction suggests compelling methodological applications. This review explores some implications for the analysis of capitalist social relations.
