Description

Why did coinage, tyranny and philosophy develop in the same time and place? The author explores how both money and language give "worth" by providing a medium of exchange; how the development of money led to a revolution in philosophical thought and language; and how words transform mere commodities into symbols at once aesthetic and practical.
