A notion of ideology relies necessarily on deeper assumptions about a consciousness subject to misapprehension and error. But in their inversions of Hegel, the mature Marx’s account of the commodity and general formula of capital dethrone consciousness altogether, assigning faculties of judgment and knowledge to the commodity instead. This essay turns to the late work of Georg Lukács to trace an alternative power of judgment formed by labor as such, in the problem of “teleological positing.”
