Retrospect on The Limits to Capital David Harvey Graduate Center, City University of New York, New York, USA; dharvey@ gc.cuny.edu It is, needless to say, a source of considerable gratification to find that a work more than twenty years old can still have meaning and even stir controversy. So I thank the contributors to this symposium who have so generously re-examined and critically engaged with their experience of reading The Limits to Capital over these twenty years. Since I cannot possibly respond to all the issues raised, I thought I would construct my own commentary and let readers judge how far it parallels or diverges from those of other contributors. I wrote Limits very much under the tutelage of Marx and with very little reference to the rest of the Marxist tradition. I did not seek to go outside of Marxâs basic assumptions nor to depart from what I saw as his dialectical method. I wanted to see how far I could get in understanding urbanization and geographical transformations from within the frame laid out in Marxâs Capital, Theories of Surplus Value, the Grundrisse and some of the ancillary writings on political economy.
