This is of course a refined version of the axiom of inclusion: whatever is of the market is relevant to a philosophy of the market. Now we can say that what belongs to the market as such are prices; thus the primary object of a philosophy of the market is price, and that a theory of price is the cornerstone of any such philosophy. The passage from price to the market is patent; the two terms are synonyms. This is, furthermore, what justifies Ayache’s assertion that ‘The market is ultimately the medium of prices of contingent claims’ (BSEP 116).

But for now the essential is that the contingency of pricing has both ontological and epistemological registers. Again, too, the contrast with value reveals itself here, for as we have seen all values make a kind of conditional demand on the future – they predispose – whereas prices manifest in a relationship of pure indifference to what came before and what comes next. First generalization: from price to the market By dwelling on the case of derivatives, what we have really been interested in is their being subject to the act of pricing: that is, the pricing process in their particular case.

In this respect,’ Ayache writes, ‘the market is often thought to be a kind of vast calculator in charge of establishing the price’ (BSEP 58). The second, correlative misprision defines price as ‘the present value of future payoffs’ (BSEP 54). While the first confusion requires the passage of time, the execution of a process, the second leaps over the process as a whole. The market is here replaced, not with a processing factory but with an idealizing algorithm: a rule that is conceived as though it could be deployed from start to finish without any need for the passage of real time or the unfolding of real events.
