Más precisamente, esta influencia hegeliana puede localizarse en el vocabulario del que Marx se sirve en esta sección I: en el hecho de que hable, como de dos cosas totalmente difeNotas marginales al “Tratado de economía política” de Adolph Wagner, Cuadernos de Pasado y Presente. México, 1982. (N. )] 17 Editions sociales, Paris. [En castellano: Marx, K. Manuscritos económico– filosóficos de 1844, Ed. Grijalbo, México, 1968. (N. )] 32 rentes, acerca de la utilidad social de los productos por una parte y del valor de cambio de los mismos productos por otra parte con términos que de hecho tienen una palabra en común, la palabra “valor”: por una parte, valor de uso, y por otra parte, valor de cambio.
La misma influencia hegeliana aparece en la imprudente fórmula del capítulo XXXII de la sección VIII del libro I, en el que Marx, al hablar de la “expropiación de los expropiadores”, declara: “se trata de la negación de la negación”. Imprudente: porque no ha dejado de hacer estragos; si bien Stalin, para beneficio propio, tuvo razón al suprimir “la negación de la negación” de las leyes de la dialéctica, mantuvo otros errores mucho más graves. 33 Ultima huella de la influencia hegeliana, y esta vez flagrante y extremadamente dañosa (ya que todos los teóricos de la “reificación” y la “alienación” han encontrado en ella con qué “fundar” sus interpretaciones idealistas del pensamiento de Marx): la teoría del fetichismo (“El carácter fetichista de la mercancía y su secreto”, parte IV del capítulo I de la sección I).
Los primeros, cegados por la ideología burguesa que hace cualquier cosa por escamotear la explotación de clase, no pueden ver la explotación capitalista Los segundos, por el contrario, a pesar de la ideología burguesa que pesa terriblemente sobre ellos, no pueden no ver esta explotación ya que constituye su vida cotidiana. Para comprender El capital y, por lo tanto, su libro I, es necesario “tomar posiciones de clase proletarias”, es decir, situarse en el único punto de vista que vuelve visible la realidad de la explotación de la fuerza de trabajo asalariada que realiza todo el capitalismo.
