Overview

In The Philosophy of Money, Georg Simmel presents a discussion of the social, psychological and philosophical aspects of the money economy. He provides us with a detailed analysis of the circulation and exchange of commodities, while considering the relationship of money to the human personality, the position of women, individual freedom and other key areas of human existence. Through this he creates a series of insights into the forms which social relationships take and gives us a comprehensive analysis of the interrelationships between the most diverse and seemingly unconnected social and cultural phenomena.
