This article aims to present and discuss some fundamental theoretical questions of Jacques Bidet’s thought, in particular, his reinterpretation of Capital and his theory of modernity. Bidet’s rethinking of economic-political modernity leads to the elaboration of a metastructural theory that produces a problematic divide between the epistemological level (transcendental Marxism) and the ontological level (empirical contractualism): a symptom of a Kantianism never explicitly discussed by the author
