Misreading Marx's Concepts of Production by J. Baudrillard

Modern Philosophy 2:11-15 (2007)

Baudrillard's criticism of Marx's concept of the production mainly in the following three aspects: First, Marx did not see the value in use is the value produced by the exchange, which he used to meet production based on the political economy model to complete the critique of capital; two, because he uses a "human anatomy for the monkey anatomy is a key" methodology, which he pre-capitalist analysis of the history of society is wrong; third, two points from the above decision He was to determine the future path of the revolution is wrong. According to the article, Baudrillard's understanding of Marx's use value, exchange value of the concept, there is no access to these concepts in Marx's genetic history of the visual field, which not only led to his concept of the nature of Marx's production of false positives, and also led to his misreading of Marx's social history. As Baudrillard in the capital of the world's dominant mode of life to the revolutionary path, and to the point of view on such issues, it is obvious methodological flaws. This paper points that J. Baudrillard 's critique of Marx's concept of production mainly lies in three aspects. Firstly, J. Baudrillard think that Marx can't understand value of us come from value of exchange, so Marx satisfy that he complete critique to capital with the model of political economy. Secondly, his analysing the history of social developmengt of Pre-capitalism is wrong be cause of the method which is a key of a monkey's analys is by the means of Person's analysis. Thirdly, just because of two above, Marx's judgement of the road to future revolution is also wrong. So to conclude that J. Baudrillard 's understanding of Marx's concepts such as use value, exchange valie, etc don't enter into Marx's historical original view of his all concepts. Above, so do he misread Marx's view of social history. So as to J. Baudrillard 's view about govermance model of capitalism to life world and the road to future revolutiong has shortcoming upon methodolegy evendently
