A Pattern Language of Money is an approach to understanding all aspects of the way money works within society, with the aim of empowering those who would design new, more life-like approaches.

Thus this is not in any sense a history of money, or an attempt at an overarching Theory of Money, but rather a propositional approach, that uses the patterning technique to identify recurring conditions in money systems and analyse them with specific reference to building more 'life-like' implementations.

The technique also documents and clarifies connections between aspects without any formalised structure - so that all interactions are considered equally valid. In this way each pattern, documenting some particular aspect that is capable of consideration as a'whole', is fully knitted in to other patterns with which it interacts, is a consituent or an emergence from, and that the user can navigate these connections.
