About this product
- DescriptionIn Money Matters, Richard Gray investigates the discourses of aesthetics and philosophy alongside ecomic thought, arguing that their domains are t mutually exclusive. The transition in Germany from an agrarian or proto-industrial ecomy to a capitalist industrial ecomy, which was paralleled by a shift from the exchange of money in coin to the use of paper currencies, occurred simultaneously with an efflorescence of German-language literature and philosophy. Based on close readings of canical literary and philosophical texts, Gray explores how this confluence led to a rich cross-fertilization between ecomic and literary thought in Germany during this period. Money Matters documents the surprising degree to which literature and philosophy participated in the creation of modern ecomic paradigms, as well as the extent to which ecomics influenced literature and philosophy. The cultural artifacts of the period demonstrate the existence of an ecomic unconsciousness : persistent tions of value and exchange that inflect the aesthetic and thematic dimensions of literary and philosophical texts. This book offers a thought-provoking and original analysis of literature and ideas in the critical transition period from Kant and Goethe, through the German Romantics, to Marx.
