This French paper is a critique of Alain Lipietz's article "Le débat sur la valeur: bilan partiel et perspectives partiales" (The debate on Value: A partial Assessment and Partisan Perspectives), contribution to an international colloquium at the EHESS in Paris in 1983 at the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the death of Karl Marx. Alain Lipietz is charged of ignoring the scientific achievements of the Soviet economists and of propagating a sort of "Stone Age Marxism" (SAM).
