The Substance of Capital by Robert Kurz is a book compiled from a series of German magazine articles translated into English. Kurz, who died in 2012, was an important figure in Marxist Value Theory (Wertkritik) and in this work he examined the central nature of work to Capitalist society. He also critiques the positions of other key figures in Value Theory including Moishe Postone and Michael Heinrich. Kurz’s belief that Capitalism was reaching its limits makes the book relevant in today’s situation of economic stagnation and ecological collapse with the accompanying calls by reformists for the state to fix it.
