Kojin Karatani’s ‘Marx’ has been amongst his most enduring and pioneering works in critical theory. Written at a time when the political sequences of the New Left had collapsed into crisis and violence, with widespread political exhaustion for the competing sectarian visions of Marxism from 1968, it laid the groundwork for a new reading, unfamiliar to the existing Marxist discourse in Japan at the time. This book takes on insights from semiotics, deconstruction, and the reading of Marx as a literary thinker, treating ‘Capital’ as an intervention in philosophy that could be read as itself a theory of signs.
