In this paper I argue that Jacques Derrida’s writings on Marx draw out a “double fra- me” that constitutes the phenomenology of value. Whereas the interior part of the frame is com- posed of use-value (understood as a “working thing” or “thinking work”) the exterior corresponds to exchange-value, and it is from the uneven overlapping of the two that the economic reducti- ons, subtractions, and additions begin. I, then, consider the fate of the inner frame in the epoch of globalization, in which the becoming-thing of the thing as such coincides with the projection of the inner frame of value onto the world.
