Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment
Money and political economy in the Enlightenment
Volume: Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment 2014:05
Series editor: Jonathan Mallinson
Volume editor(s): Daniel Carey

REVIEW(S): 
Through reading this book we realize that money was not only considered a vehicle for the facilitation of exchange, but that major philosophers like Filmer, Locke, Toland, Berkeley, Hume, and Smith, saw money as a multilayered mechanism that played a key role in the constitution of culture, politics, morality, and justice. The volume contains both careful contextualization of oft-debated issues, as well as a number of bold and ambitious claims that are likely to spark new conversations.
Carl Wennerlind, Barnard College, Columbia University

‘[in this book] there is a tight connection between Enlightenment ideas and the historical context in which they were originally offered […] almost without exception, the scholarship is of high quality.’
Richard Kleer, French history (vol.29, issue 2)
