Messages from George Simmel
Simmel's influence on Sociology has been immense. This volume aims to re-examine that legacy and draw lessons for today's scholars.
As the founder of the humanist version of sociology, Georg Simmel sent powerful messages about the discipline. His key ideas—that reality is socially constructed, changes over time, and rarely is as it appears—are critically re-examined with an eye toward drawing lessons for contemporary scholars and activists. With essential insights for those working in any field within the social sciences.
