Problem produkcyjności pracy w świetle Marksowskiej teorii wartości



The Problem Productivity of Work in the Light of Marxian Theory of Value

In the article I analyze problem productivity of work on basis Marxian labor theory of value. I indicate the basic meanings of Marxian category of productivity and underline the diff erence between „productive” and „capital” understanding productive work. In that perspective I consider problem of productivity of work realizing in sphere of services and intellectual work scientific and artistic work. In the conclusion I claim that Marxian concept of value cannot be applied to the „works of spirit” and the original creative work cannot be treated as productive work. Therefore „works of spirit” can be compared to the goods and powers of nature.
