This course will explore all three volumes of Marx‘s Capital. The architecture of Capital as a book reflects his concept of capital as value in motion. He viewed capital as a loosely coupled ecosystem of diverse parts powered by the search for profit or surplus value. The three volumes of Capital construct different windows from which to study the evolution of this ecosystem. By putting the three volumes together we can build a more workable and realistic model of the evolutionary trajectory of capital over time and space.
