Money and Soul: The Psychology of Money and the Transformation of Captialism
Per Espen Stoknes
Many people feel that money and what we perceive as the psyche (or soul) are bitter enemies – do we choose money or soul, finance or feelings, markets or common humanity? This book traces the origins of these opposing concepts, and the feelings that money provokes. Economic ideas often stand out as being universal, globally valid and without cultural ties. But when money is viewed in its cultural and philosophical context, it becomes evident that the money of today is a particular system of symbols, something that society itself has devised over many centuries, that both reflects and reinforces society’s dominant concerns.
In the 21st century, our major concerns include social cohesion, global warming and environmental destruction.
