The present paper aims to analyse Marx's concept of "fetishism of commodities" by explaining the mechanism of a social genesis of determined illusions, arising in the sphere of production and circulation of commodities. It highlights the existence of an auto-sustained autarkic system of 4 variables -reification, objectification, duplicity and habit -sustaining and leading to the fetishism of commodities.
