Option
1. I will remove
some
of the underlined text and rearrange the order of the eight
terms below. You will have to fill in the blanks. Every blank will be worth 1 point.
From
Capital
.
Commodity
: “a thing which through its
qualities
satisfies human needs of whatever kind.” (125)
Use-value
: “the usefulness of a thing….conditioned by the physical properties of the commodity,
and has no existence apart from the latter…is independent of the amount of
labour
required to
appropriate its useful qualities….Use-values are only realized
in use or in consumption
.” (126)
Exchange-value
: “appears first of all as the quantitative relation, the proportion, in which
use

values
of one kind
exchange
for
use-values
of another kind. This relation changes constantly
with time and place….[It depends upon the possibility of a] common element of identical
magnitude exists in two different things, in [a bushel of] corn and similarly in a [pile of] iron.
Both are therefore equal to a third thing, which in itself is neither the one nor the other. [Note,
Marx doesn’t raise the issue of money here, not yet.] Each of them, so far as it is
exchange-value
,
must therefore be reducible to this third thing.” (126-27)
Congealed labour-time
: “The value of a commodity is related to the value of any other
commodity as the
labour-time
necessary for the production of the one is related to the
labour-
time
necessary for the production of the other. ‘As
exchange-values
, all commodities are merely
definite
quantities of
congealed labour-time
. [Marx,
Critique of Political Economy
]’.”(130)
Useful labour
: “…labour whose utility is represented by the use-value of its product, or by the
fact that its product is a use-value. In this connection we consider only its useful effect.” (132)
Mystical character
: “The
mystical character
of the commodity does not…arise from its use-
value. [Which is clear: a tomato is for eating; a comb is for combing hair.]…. The mysterious
character of the commodity-form consists…simply in the fact that the commodity reflects the
social characteristics
of men’s own
labour
as
objective characteristics
of the
products
of labour
themselves, as the socio-natural properties of these things. “ (164-65)
Fantastic form
: “…the commodity-form, and the value-relation of the products of labour within
which it appears [
exchange value
],
have absolutely no connection
with the physical nature of the
commodity and the
material relations
arising out of this [
use value
]. It is nothing but the definite
social
relation between men
themselves which assumes here, for them, the fantastic form of a
relation between things
.” (165)
Fetishism
: “…the products of the human brain [exchange values and commodities] appear as
autonomous figures endowed with a life of their own, which enter into relations both with each
other and with the human race. So it is in the world of commodities with the products of men’s
hands. I call this the
fetishism
which attaches itself to the
products
of labour as soon as they are
produced as commodities, and is therefore inseparable from the production of commodities.”
(165)
