Review of Metaphysics 13 (4):705-705 (1960)
  Copy   BIBTEX


This is an able book of essays, written by well-qualified scholars, about an unjustly neglected nineteenth century German philosopher. He is known in this country primarily as the founder of "formal sociology," but much of what he has to say belongs with equal propriety to the philosophy of culture. The aim of the volume is to rehabilitate Simmel's reputation, which suffered much among sociologists from attacks by Abel and Sorokin. The volume also contains about 100 pages of Simmel's own essays in translation: "The Ruin," "The Handle," and "The Aesthetic Significance of the Face," among others.--A. R. A.
