Money Wisdom #48

"The remarkable tension in Germany between the development of thought and that of material production... ...helps to explain German philosophers' fascination with the relationship between money and ontology and it elucidates the influence of the economists James Steuart and Adam Smith on Kant and Hegel. Monetary theory ties together symbol and commodity, as well as universal and particular, in a knotty conception of the relationship between thought and matter."

Marc Shell Money Language and Thought 1982 p.151
