Exciting the Industry of Mankind falsifies the view that Berkeley has nothing to tell us about our present and future social and economic life. For the 'idealism' Berkeley found in the money form is now becoming a fact of global economic life, when 'xenomoney' and 'virtual money' exchanges begin to dwarf commodity transactions, and the future becomes the dominant temporal dimension of economic activity.
Philosophers, historians, cultural theorists, economists and lovers of Irish history will be interested in this volume.
