Labor and Human Social Metabolism: An Anthropological Perspective

Our global ecological crisis has created an increasing interest in Marx’s theory of metabolic rift as a crucial aspect of capitalism. To appreciate fully how capitalism creates this rift, it is important to examine the human metabolic relation with nature in general and theoretical terms. ICSS member Gene Ruyle will explore the implications of Marx’s insight that labor is “the universal condition for the metabolic interaction between man and nature, the everlasting nature-imposed condition of human existence, and it is therefore independent of every form of that existence, or rather it is common to all forms of society in which human beings live.” (Capital, Vol I, p. 291)
