By Harald A. Mieg, Astrid O. Sundsboe, Majken Bieniok

Georg Simmel hat mit seinem Aufsatz "Die Großstädte und das Geistesleben" (1903) den Anstoß für die sozialwissenschaftliche Stadtforschung gegeben. Für Simmel verkörpern Großstädte den Sitz der Moderne - Orte, an denen sich durch Arbeitsteilung und Spezialisierung eine besondere Produktivkraft herausbildet. Orte, an denen das Individuum einen bis dahin unbekannten Grad an persönlicher Freiheit erlangt. Mit diesem Buch, einem Herausgeberwerk des Georg-Simmel-Zentrums für Metropolenforschung, gehen die Autorinnen und Autoren der Frage nach, welche Relevanz Simmel für die heutige Stadtforschung besitzt. Insbesondere wird das interdisziplinäre Potenzial des Simmelschen Ansatzes aufgezeigt.
