Georg Simmel

Liverpool University Press

This chapter includes a lecture by Professor Dr. Georg Simmel as a guest speaker for the Great Evening held on the 19th of October, 1910 regarding the sociology of society. In his speech, Simel discussed social interactions using arguments that stemmed from social dynamics, his opposition to states or conditions, minute social interactions (such as flirtations between man and woman) and Kantian divisions between form and content. The ideas presented in this speech were considered too trivial to be the main focus of research as those notions were rarely acknowledged in sociology, and because of that Simmel believed that they could be the subject of analysis.
