David Graeber’s “Debt: The First 5,000 Years”


This Socratic Seminar was based on David Graeber's book Debt: The First 5,000 Years, plus a short selection from Felix Martin's Money: The Unauthorized Biography. The importance of these two books is to be found in their efforts to promote a discussion on the nature of money.
