SALAZAR, Boris. Between Marx and Zuleta: Pause, Crises and Revolution. Prax. filos. [online]. 2010, n.31, pp. 45-60. ISSN 0120-4688.
This essay is an attempt to show the analytical potentiality of the concept of pause suggested by Estanislao Zuleta in his reading of chapter 1 of Marx's Capital. By linking it to recent developments by Kojin Karatani and Slavoj Zizek, it claims that the concept of pause -equivalent to the breach or mortal jump of those last two philosophers- induces the emergence of many possible worlds into the metamorphosis of commodities into money and thus the ever present possibility of crisis. It follows that neither crisis lead into revolution, nor revolution can stop capital's reproduction: Revolution thus becomes a day-to-day task.
