Summary/Abstract: The author reflects on Dag Strpić’s book Karl Marx and the Political Economy of Modernity, in particular on the part in which Strpić laid out the scientific results of his research into the applicability of Marx’s critique of political economy from the viewpoint of commodity production on the theoretical level of “capital in general”. Furthermore, she draws attention to Strpić’s discussion of the causes of appearance of various forms of globalizing modern totalitarianisms (political and corporate), which can also be recognized in the contemporary neo-liberal order. This is so in spite of the fact that the latter is legitimized theoretically and ideologically as liberal, and that, in principle, it has retained its form of modern development.
