Abstract

In ‘The Metropolis and Mental Life,’ Georg Simmel gives a thorough account of the peculiar circumstances that city residents experience in daily life. Particularly in his call to investigate the connection that an urban ‘social structure promotes between the individual aspects of life and those which transcend the existence of single individuals,’ Simmel grapples with a fundamental challenge that all city dwellers must face: to be one in a world of millions, to seek a sense of individuality in an environment structured around the seemingly infinite presence of others, all looking for some way to define themselves similarly.
