Is a non-economistic approach to the economic possible? This paper presents a positive answer to this question through a discussion of the much vaunted Rudolf Hilferding. In particular, it examines Hilferding’s implicit structuralism in his portrayal of the economic space as organized. The notion of organization is critically analysed from the perspective of recent advances in post-structuralist theory around the concept of discourse. To this effect, the paper attempts to develop a fuller theoretical understanding of the idea of disorganization. Finally, it looks at the consequences that this idea might hold for a new conception of democratic politics. © 1991, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
