    1. This is a well-written book about a challenging idea - value.Value is traced through Marx and his mercurial use of the term is explicated. So far so good but in the end what value actually is eludes us.I felt that George Henderson takes a postmodern approach to 'value'. Value, like meaning, overflows its banks, which is good and bad. It is bad because it washes away things we have built in the floodplain. It is good, because it clears some space and enriches the soil for future use, in this cas [...]
