Archaeology of the Multiple

  • Elie Ayache


Value appears as soon as the multiple exists. Or to be more precise, as soon as the differentiated multiple exists, a multiple whose constituent parts are fully identified. In saying this, we imply that one might envisage a multiple within which multiple states are not identified, a multiple which would therefore be one, understanding this unity in a sense that does not contradict multiplicity. This book is concerned with the unusual matter from which such a non-differentiated multiple is made. As far as it is concerned, rather than value we must speak of price.
