This volume brings together a wide range of essays on culture and related themes by the sociologist and philosopher Georg Simmel. The collection includes a large number of previously untranslated essays together with others that are not readily available, thereby enabling the reader to engage with the full range of Simmel's contributions to the study of culture. The collection opens with Simmel's most basic essays on defining culture, its changes and its crisis. These are followed by more specific explorations of the culture of face to face interactions, spatial and urban culture, leisure culture, the culture of money and commodities, the culture of belief and the politics of female culture. This text not only provides a missing piece in the history of cultural study, it also reveals a new way of studying culture.
