    Ambiguous Individuality: Georg Simmel on the “Who” and the “What” of the Individual.Olli Pyyhtinen - 2008 - Human Studies 31 (3):279-298.
    The essay discusses the philosopher and sociologist Georg Simmel’s theorizing about the individual. Whereas it is typically within the context of the modern metropolis and the mature money economy that Simmel’s ideas have been discussed in the secondary literature, I render those ideas in another light by addressing the ontological and existential issues crucial to his conception of the individual. In Simmel, the individual is divided between the “what” and the “who,” between the qualities which make one something individual and (...)

    On Simmel’s Conception of Philosophy.Turo-Kimmo Lehtonen & Olli Pyyhtinen - 2008 - Continental Philosophy Review 41 (3):301-322.
    Over the past few decades, the work of Georg Simmel (1858–1918) has again become of interest. Its reception, however, has been fairly one-sided and selective, mostly because Simmel’s philosophy has been bypassed in favor of his sociological contributions. This article examines Simmel’s explicit reflections on the nature of philosophy. Simmel defines philosophy through three aspects which, according to him, are common to all philosophical schools. First, philosophical reasoning implies the effort to think without preconditions. Second, Simmel maintains that in contrast (...)

    From Metaphysics as Dogma to Metaphysics as Life: Georg Simmel as a Process Philosopher.Olli Pyyhtinen - 2009 - Process Studies 38 (2):253-278.
    This essay addresses the process philosophy of the German fin-de-siècle philosopher and sociologist Georg Simmel. While Simmel’s contribution to sociological process analysis has been widely acknowledged, his more subtle philosophical contributions have largely gone unnoticed. In the essay, Simmel’s philosophical process thinking is discussed by focusing on three themes. The first is what he calls his “relativistic” mode of thinking, a way of considering entities in terms of processes and dynamic relations. The second one is his Lebensphilosophie, lifephilosophy, philosophy that (...)

    Georg Simmel’s Traces: An Interview with Olli Pyyhtinen.Olli Pyyhtinen & David Beer - 2018 - Theory, Culture and Society 35 (7-8):271-280.
    This interview with Olli Pyyhtinen explores his recent work on the writings of Georg Simmel. It focuses in particular upon his new book, The Simmelian Legacy. Taking that book as its focal point, the interview examines the influence of Simmel’s work, the key concepts and ideas it provides and how we might use it today.

    Life, Death and Individuation: Simmel on the Problem of Life Itself.Olli Pyyhtinen - 2012 - Theory, Culture and Society 29 (7-8):78-100.
    The article argues for the relevance of Simmel's life‐philosophy for the contemporary thought about life and death. By considering life, paradoxically, at once as a pre‐individual flux of becoming and individuated, Simmel manages to avoid both reductionism and mysticism. In addition, unlike Deleuze, for example, Simmel thinks that we can experience and know life only in some individual, actual form, never in its pure virtuality, as an absolute flow. During the course of examination, Simmel's insights will also be discussed in (...)
