Overview

Georg Simmel: Rembrandt is the first English translation of a key mature work by one of the most influential European intellectuals of the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, and one of the major figures in the history of sociology and social theory. This book is a bold attempt to discern the significance and meaning of the works of Rembrandt, and at the same time to explore systematically Simmel's own theoretical position. It not only provides insights into Rembrandt, but also contains reflections on topics such as religion, individuality, and death which have had a profound impact on subsequent thought. The arguments that Simmel presents here may alter his reception and interpretation within the English-speaking world.
