But let us return to Tugan’s synthesis. According to him, each economic action (“the principle of economic activity”) entailed two categories: those of price and value. Price was a means, whereas value was the purpose of economic activity, regardless of the concrete form of an enterprise, such as whether it was capitalist or Socialist. While value was the attitude of the subject or consumer to a given good, price always pertained to labour; it was a relationship of the producer to the good (in capitalism, from the point of view of capitalists, it was seen as expenditure). In “¾áÝÞÒë ßÞÛØâØçÕáÚÞÙ íÚÞÝÞÜiØ” [“The Fundamentals of Political Economy”], Tugan’s textbook dedicated to ºÕÝÕ, ³ÞáÕÝ and Marx, we read this:

The basic logical categories of an economy are value and price. Both categories stem from the nature of the economic process which, on the one hand, always pursues the external end of adapting exterior nature to our needs, while on the other, attains this end solely through expenditure which thus comprises the means of attaining the end. And so, the means and the end, expenditure and attainment (or delivery) are the twin poles between which is locked all economic activity. In accord with this, the economic principle has also a dualistic character: to attain the greatest economic benefit with the least expenditure. Each economic activity strives to be in concert with these twin requirements of the economic principle; requirements in which find expression the two basic logical categories of an economy: price (expenditure) and value (attainment). The entirety of economic activity, regardless of its exceptional complexity, is included within these two basic categories of the economy, in the same way in which the operations of each economic undertaking, whatever its nature, are exhausted within the mere two accounting categories of assets and liabilities.” (±, 1924, [1915]).

Marguerite Duras, telle qu’en elle-même [”Marguerite Duras, Herself”] (60 minutes, 2002)
Directed by Dominique Auvray

The long collaboration and lasting friendship between Dominque Auvray and Marguerite Duras began with their meeting in 1974. In this film, Dominque (who edited Duras’ films) presents a personal view of the writer, using photographs, home movies and footage from television programmes. Without any reluctance, Duras speaks of her youth and family (we know of her mother and brothers in Indochina from Un Barrage Contre le Pacifique), her loves and friends (the rue Saint-Benoît group of Robert Antelme, Dionys Mascolo, Edgar Morin), of her work, of the artists who fascinate her (Madeleine Renaud and Bulle Ogier during rehearsals for Savannah Bay in 1984), and of her political passions. What typifies Duras is her ability to flit from pain to joy and from the serious to the anecdotal in an instant. An extended portrait of a woman, a mother, a journalist, a fighter, a friend, a writer, and a director.
