__Capital__In his Preface to the First German edition of

**,**

__Capital__**volume I**, Marx wrote as follows regarding the

**category, or «**

*beginning***» category, of his**

*arché***of his systematic treatise on the human-social historical**

*method of presentation***known as “capitalist society” [**

*totality*

*emphasis*

**is difficult, holds in all sciences.**

*beginning*To understand the first chapter, especially the section that contains the analysis of

**, will, therefore, present the greatest difficulty.**

*commodities*That which concerns more especially the analysis of the substance of value and the magnitude of value, I have, as much as it was possible, popularised.

The [M.D.:

**]**

*elementary*

*value**-*, whose fully-developed shape is the

**form**

*money**-*, is very

**form****and**

*elementary***.**

*simple*

*Nevertheless**,*, whilst, on the other hand, to the successful analysis of much

**the human mind has for more than 2**,**000 years sought in vain to get to the bottom of it****and**

*more composite***forms, there has been at least an approximation.**

*complex*Why?

Because the

**, as an**

*body***, is**

*organic whole***than are the**

*more easy of study***of that body.**

*cells**But in bourgeois society the*

*commodity**-*

**form***of the product of labour –*

**[M.D.:**

*or the***]**

*elementary*

*value**-*

**form**

*of the commodity**– is the*

**.**

*economic cell form*To the superficial observer, the analysis of these forms seems to turn upon minutiæ.

It does in fact deal with minutiæ, but they are of the same order as those dealt with in microscopic anatomy.

With the exception of the section on the value-form, therefore, this volume cannot stand accused on the score of difficulty.

__Elementary__**. Marx writes of this form: “The whole mystery of the form of value lies hidden in this elementary form. Its analysis, therefore, is our real difficulty. Here two different kinds of commodities (in our example the linen and the coat), evidently play two different parts. The linen expresses its value in the coat; the coat serves as the material in which that value is expressed. The former plays an active, the latter a passive, part. The value of the linen is represented as relative value, or appears in relative form. The coat officiates as equivalent, or appears in equivalent form. The relative form and the equivalent form are two intimately connected, mutually dependent and inseparable elements of the expression of value; but, at the same time, are mutually exclusive, antagonistic extremes –**

__Value-Form__*i.e.*,

**of the same expression.” [**

“The value of a single commodity, the linen, for example, is now expressed in terms of numberless other elements of the world of commodities. Every other commodity now becomes a mirror of the linen’s value. It is thus that, for the first time, this value shows itself in its true light as a congelation of undifferentiated human labour. For the labour that creates it, now stands expressly revealed, as labour that ranks equally with every other sort of human labour, no matter what its form, whether tailoring, ploughing, mining, &c., and no matter, therefore, whether it is realized in coats, corn, iron, or gold. The linen, by virtue of the form of its value, now stands in a[n exchange-value – M.D.] social relation, no longer with only one [other – M.D.] kind of commodity, but with the whole world of commodities[, itself excepted – M.D.]. As a commodity, it is a citizen of that world. At the same time, the interminable series of value equations implies, that as regards the value of a commodity, it is a matter on indifference under what particular form, or kind, of use-value it appears.”

**Defects**of the Total or Expanded form of value. In the first place, the relative expression of value is incomplete because the series representing it is interminable. The chain of which each equation of value is a link, is liable at any moment to be lengthened by each new kind of commodity that comes into existence and furnishes [it with – M.D.] the material for a fresh expression of [its – M.D.] value.

In the second place, it is a many-coloured mosaic of disparate and independent expressions of value.

And lastly, if, as must be the case, the relative value of each commodity in turn, becomes expressed in this expanded form, we get for each of them a relative value-form, different in every case, and consisting of an interminable series of expressions of value.

The defects of the expanded relative value form are reflected in the corresponding equivalent form.

Since the bodily form of each single commodity is one particular equivalent form amongst numberless others, we have, on the whole, nothing but fragmentary equivalent forms, each excluding the others.

In the same way, also, the special, concrete, useful kind of labour embodied in each particular equivalent, is presented only as a particular kind of labour, and therefore not as an exhaustive representative of human labour generally.

The latter, indeed, gains adequate manifestation in the totality of its manifold, particular, concrete forms. But, in that case, its expression in an [M.D.:

*practically-*]infinite series is ever incomplete and deficient in unity.The expanded relative value-form is, however, nothing but the sum of the elementary relative expressions or equations of the first kind, such as

..........................................................20 yards of linen..=..1 coat

..........................................................20 yards of linen..=..10 lbs. of tea, etc.

Each of these implies the corresponding inverted equation,

............................................................1 coat..=..20 yards of linen

..........................................................10 lbs. of tea..=..20 yards of linen, etc.

In fact, when a person exchanges his linen for many other commodities, and thus expresses its value in a series of other commodities, it necessarily follows, that the various owners of the latter exchange them for the linen, and consequently express the value of their various commodities in one and the same third commodity, the linen. If then, we reverse the series, 20 yards of linen = 1 coat or = 10 lbs. of tea, etc., that is to say, if we give expression to the converse relation already implied in the series, we get,

*The altered character of the form of value*

All commodities now express their value (1) in an

**form, because in a**__elementary__**commodity; (2) with**__single__**, because in one and the same commodity. This form of value is***unity***and**__elementary__**, therefore**__the same for all__**.**__general__. . .

[M.D.: This]

**is a form of***universal equivalent form***.***value in general*It can, therefore, be assumed by any commodity.

On the other hand, if a commodity be found to have assumed the universal equivalent form (

**form C**), this is only because and in so far as it has been excluded from the rest of all other commodities as their equivalent, and that by their own act.And from the moment that this exclusion becomes finally restricted to one particular commodity, from that moment only, the general form of relative value of the world of commodities obtains real consistence and general social validity.

The particular commodity, with whose bodily form the equivalent form is thus socially identified, now becomes the money-commodity, or serves as money.

It becomes the special social function of that commodity, and consequently its social monopoly, to play within the world of commodities the part of the universal equivalent.

Amongst the commodities which, in

**form B**, figure as particular equivalents of the linen, and in**form C**, express in common their relative values in linen, this foremost place has been attained by one in particular -- namely, gold.If, then, in

**form C**we replace the linen by**gold**, we get,...........................................................

The difficulty in forming a concept of

**the money**-**form**, consists in comprehending the universal equivalent form, and as a necessary corollary,**the general form of value**,**form C**.The latter is deducible from

**form B**,**the expanded form of value**, the essential*component***of which, we saw, is***element***form A**, 20 yards of linen = 1 coat or x commodity A = y commodity B.The
