»Die Kunst Rembrandts, nicht die eines beliebigen Stümpers« Georg Simmel als Philosoph der repräsentativen Kultur 

Back to issue: Zeitschrift für Kulturphilosophie 2015/1-2: Simmel
EUR 14.90

It seems misleading to regard Georg Simmel as one of the founders of modern cultural studies. Instead, it is argued that Simmel's cultural sociology remained oriented to 19th century’s culture. In this sense the article reconstructs his theory of individual and collective cultivation as standing in contrast to currently dominating cultural concepts based on egalitarianism.
