PHI 195-01 - Introductory Special Topic: The Nature of Money

4 credits (Spring)
Money can be anything in human culture that functions as a unit of account, store of value, and medium of exchange. But this makes the following question notoriously difficult to answer: what is money? In this course, we investigate the nature of what has been called money, making use of historical, philosophical, and anthropological materials to approach the metaphysical, epistemological, and political problems caused by the ambiguous nature of money.

Prerequisite: None
