Book Title: On Individuality and Social Forms

Author: Georg Simmel

Book Description:

Simmel’s approach to the study of social relations stressed the importance of symbolism, interpersonal distance, and the reciprocity of effects in human interactions. His refined sensitivity to the complexities and often ironic tangles associated with historical innovations have deeply informed my research in the history of social deviance.
