Centre Georg Simmel

The Center covers History, Sociology, Anthropology, Law, Philosophy, German, Literary Studies, and Musicology and brings together researchers tackling a range of problematics in reference to Simmel and the challenge of thinking a world that is undergoing constant transformation by examining its most characteristic features. 

This question enables Franco-German research to position itself within a European and international frame of reference and to enrich the methodological and theoretical debates of the disciplines represented in the Center.

The Center has four research areas: Creative Acts; Work, Skills and Biographies; Normative Spaces; Theory and Practice in Historical Knowledge.
