The paper is devoted to the recent discussion within the field of economic sociology about the nature of money in its purely theoretical manner. Multiple circumstances and fundamental ideas of sociological discourse which included works of Bruce Carruthers, Nigel Dodd, Viviana Zelizer, Geoffrey Ingham, and Costas Lapavitsas, were analyzed. At the first part of the paper the author particularly reviews the original sources of theoretical contradictions among modern sociologists of money. Ontological, epistemological, methodological as well as political and ideological issues were included. The second part discusses the core polemics and the demarcation of the leading trends in the field. The author finally concludes with the recognition of major options for the future sociological investigations of money.
