Aristotle on Money - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 28
Money/Aristoteles: Aristotle's view of the money value is surprisingly modern: It is not attributed to the material or intrinsic value of money, but to the mere agreement of the money users, i.e. the general acceptance of a certain medium as a means of exchange.

Höffe I 56
Money/Aristotle/Höffe: While for Plato money was suspect, no more than a necessary evil, Aristotle, in the context of ordering justice, presents the first theory of money ever written in Europe. He describes its nature and function with astonishing clarity:
Exchange: By making highly different goods and services comparable, money enables a society based on the division of labour to carry out the various exchange processes
Marx: "The genius of Aristotle", Marx still acknowledges, "shines precisely in the fact that he discovers a relationship of equality in the value expression of goods.
MarxVsAristotle: Only the historical barrier of the society in which he lived prevents him from finding out what "in truth" this relationship of equality consists of".(1)
Use value/Aristoteles: Höffe: The fact that Aristotle, unlike Marx, did not orientate himself on human work, but on the use and need value, can also be understood as an (perhaps even more modern) alternative.
>Value theory, >K. Marx.
