WELLEN, Henrique. Karl Marx and the Political Economy: From Moral Rejection to Critical Assimilation. Serv. Soc. Soc. [online]. 2020, n.137, pp.35-53.  Epub Feb 07, 2020. ISSN 2317-6318.

We tried to analyze historical, theoretical and political elements that composed the transit of the relationship between Karl Marx and political economy. To do that, the relationship between the meanings of the categories of abstract work and the labour power was highlighted with the evolution of this dynamic, marked by three central moments: a critique with philosophical and moral content; the acceptance of the Ricardian theory of wages; and a critical assimilation, propelling an innovative economic analysis.

Keywords : Karl Marx; Political economy; Labour power; Abstract work.
