This book has two themes: an esoteric and a mundane one. The esoteric theme is the "Marx-Hegel relation" and the mysteries of "dialectics" which are commonly supposed to comprise its core. The mundane theme is money and the distinctive mode of sociality -- namely the "market" -- which gives rise both to existence of economic value and the real medium of existence of the latter which money, in effect, is. In the clarification of the mundane theme, it will be suggested, lies the key to resolving the mysteries of the esoteric one. The substantive aim which the author sets himself is that of clarifying the practical logic of exchange which gives rise to this mysterious "value-objectivity".
