Com. See Barthes, 1973: 139. This aspect of Barthes’s account has strong resonances with Marx’s thesis of commodity fetishism, in which the mystical, enigmatic character of commodities derives from the mistaken attribution of value as inherent in commodities, rather than as the result of human labour (Marx, 1978: 319–29). See Chapter 2 for a more detailed discussion of the influence of the commodity fetishism thesis on critical literature. See for example writers like Wernick (1991), Leiss et al.
At the simplest level this conception involves the idea that there is a determinative relationship of some form between the physical properties of objects and their usevalue. This is what Barthes terms the ‘historical meaning’ of objects, and it is this which disappears from view with the dominance of exchange-value in capitalist societies. There is not the space here to engage in a detailed review of everything Marx had to say on the subject. The existence of contradictions in the sheer volume of Marx’s writing leaves plenty of scope for debate between authors like Sahlins (1976), who regard Marx’s materialist view of meaning as denying the cultural dimension of utility, and those like Jhally (1987), who think Sahlins misinterprets Marx.
The focus then shifts to the question of how advertising is supposed to get in between people and objects.

The section considers the prevalence of this view in the literature, examines the nature of some of the evidence available to support it, and suggests two main problems with such evidence.
