    One thought on “The Philosophy of Money

    1. Hadrian on said:

      Money is freedom. Money is a private plane. Money is no metal detection.-50 CentThe Philosophy of Money is an ambitious book. It is not just a sociological look at money, but dips into metaphysics, a bit of economics, and uses historical examples. Money, as 50 Cent says, is not just a store of value, but a symbol of personal freedom, something with greater meaning. Simmel's goal is to find out how and why this is the case, and his approach moves from the analytic to the synthetic. The first hund [...]

    3. Trevor on said:

      This book comes in two parts: an analytical and a synthetic half – so, a pulling apart of the idea of money, followed by a putting it back together again. The preface and introduction make the point that Simmel didn’t really do footnotes, or even tell you in the text where he might have gotten ideas from. However, they also say that about the only people mentioned as a source of ideas here is Marx, I think 3 times, and Nietzsche twice – the book is over 500 pages long, like I said, who nee [...]

      Four star not because I have major disagreement with the content -- the discussion on the interaction of subjectivity and currency, which is basically the same theme of my critics towards the Wealth of Nations -- but the style. Utterly unbearable.I have sat through a course in the same fashion of this book once and it was painful. What could be wrapped up in a few lines was extended to arduous and often times redundant plus distracting paragraphs. Seriously, how hard is it for Simmel to say: "Va [...]

    5. Kerveros on said:

      Although it has been written more than 100 years ago, the Philosophy of Money is a brilliant work. No matter whether somebody agrees or not with the content it as an exceptional effort to combine philosophy, sociology. psychology and economy in order to explain what I would call the ontology of money in modern societies. The book is a very characteristic work of german structuralism.

    6. Michael on said:

      More of an ontogeny of thought really, but establishing "value" as a kind of independent dimension of reality which is appended to the material world by exchange-interactions.

    7. Alexan Martin-Eichner on said:

      I can only quote Walter Benjamin: "This book is full of insights, so long as you disregard its central thesis."A bizarre neo-Kantian treatise of the "unfolding in time of money," this work is almost horrifically wide-ranging in its analysis and penetrating in its depth. While the transcendentalism inherent in the metaphysical treatment of money is repulsive (especially when he discusses gender), his elaboration on the material semiotics and cultural situated-ness of money are absolutely brillian [...]

      پول برای زیمل تنها جنبه اقتصادی ندارد بلکه برای او فرمی است که علاوه بر ارزش و مبادله و ارتباط ، به شکل پدیده ای و فلسفی - روانی، جای بحث و بررسی دارد. زیمل در کنار نگاه به تاریخچه پول و روند تغییرات آن بحث بسیار عمیق و دقیقی را باز می کند تا نشان دهد پول برخی فرم های اجتماعی را پد [...]

    9. Χριστίνα Παντελή on said:

      Simmel had a really interesting insight on how capitalism, metropolises, and money work in society and also in individuals. The book was written in 1900 but it is still relevant since it reflects at some point the society today. It is worth reading. It made me want to study sociology more.

    10. Torsten Bastuck on said:

      Dieses Buch erstaunt mit den visionären Blicken Georg Simmels auf Dinge, die sich mittlerweile ereigneten oder gerade abspielen. Ich neige beinahe dazu, Simmel als Prophet zu bezeichnen, wüsste ich nicht, dass er einfach zuende gedacht hatte.

    11. Conrad on said:

      I'd give a kidney for this book if anyone would take it. Why, oh why does it have to retail at $180? Is this some sick joke?
