Summary/Abstract: In this article, I will juxtapose Simmel's theory with Martin Heidegger's thought. I intend to gain, by this, possibly fundamental (in the existential ontological, Heideggerian sense of the word) sight of his position. In Reading Simmel “by using Heidegger,” I will inquire about his interpretation of “being-in-the-world” and about a place that the phenomenon of money occupies within the limits of being-in-the-world. As it may turn out, this method of analysis will enable us to look at Heidegger's thought in a new way, revealing a certain kind of anachronism or at least a one-sided view of human beings. The question is as follows: whose interpretation of the existential-ontological structure of Dasein is more adequate, Simmel's or Heidegger's?
