ABSTRACT. It is a widespread cliche that there is no relationship between Marxian theory of estrangement (Entfremdung) exposed in the Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844 and the theory of value present in Marxian scientific works like Das Kapital and Grundrisse. In this essay I will try to demonstrate, despite this historical-philosophical cliche, that the concept of Entfremdung is perfectly compatible with Marxian economic theories; furthermore, I will demonstrate that the Marxian theory of estrangement or alienation (Entäusserung), acted as a kind of philosophical premise to the theory of value. pp. 102–112

Keywords: alienation, capitalism, economy, estrangement, theory of value
