    A Symposium on Georg Simmel: Essays on Art and Aesthetics.Elizabeth S. Goodstein, Austin Harrington, Thomas Kemple & Nicola Marcucci - forthcoming - Thesis Eleven:072551362211217.
    Georg Simmel has long been appreciated as a major theorist of the arts in society, as well as of aesthetic phenomena in general in social life. Yet Simmel’s essays in the area have remained dispersed for many years across the disparate parts of his corpus and have not been easy to survey in their full thematic cohesion and interconnection. This symposium article reflects on Austin Harrington’s comprehensive anthology of these writings in English, published in 2020, which assembles virtually all the (...)

    Instrumentum Vocale.Thomas M. Kemple - 2005 - Theory, Culture and Society 22 (4):1-22.
    Max Weber’s reply to Werner Sombart’s lecture on technology and culture, presented at the first meeting of the German Sociological Society held in Frankfurt in 1910, is discussed in terms of its conventional and improvised character as a distinctive mode of ‘sociological’ speech. Emphasis is placed on the specific rhetorical circumstances that gave rise to these remarks, especially with regard to Weber’s status as an authorized speaker at the meeting, and their formulation as a response to Marxist theories accepted or (...)

    Spirits of Late Capitalism.Thomas M. Kemple - 2007 - Theory, Culture and Society 24 (3):147-159.
    Taking Max Weber's conception of the modern capitalist world system as a classical precedent, and with reference to a series of analytical schemas on capital formation, this essay takes three recent books as a starting point for examining the revival of critical theoretical attention to 'the new capitalism'. The Social Structures of the Economy by Pierre Bourdieu focuses on the erosion of the separation between business and household economies by providing a case study of the construction boom in single-family dwellings (...)

    Introduction: Georg Simmel’s ‘Sociological Metaphysics’: Money, Sociality, and Precarious Life.Austin Harrington & Thomas M. Kemple - 2012 - Theory, Culture and Society 29 (7-8):7-25.
    The articles brought together in this double-length section of the Annual Review of Theory, Culture & Society focus on two intertwined strands of the thought of Georg Simmel, both of them neglected until recent years. A first bears on what might be called Simmel’s metaphysics of the social, or what he himself once called ‘sociological metaphysics’. A second strand centres on the renewed contemporary relevance of Simmel’s ideas about money economies and their relation to precarious individual life-situations in an age (...)

    The Sociological Imagination and its Imperial Shadows.Thomas M. Kemple & Renisa Mawani - 2009 - Theory, Culture and Society 26 (7-8):228-249.
    This article commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of The Sociological Imagination by recalling, renewing and updating C. Wright Mills’ pledge to expand a politically aware, self-reflective and publicly accessible intellectual culture between aestheticism and scientism. We begin by sketching how Mills’ ‘bifocal’ vision of the translation between the close-up perspective on personal milieus and the longer view of social structures contrasts with recent calls for a public sociology which would sustain its professional legitimacy while reviving its critical conscience. To illustrate this (...)

    Review: Austin Harrington, German Cosmopolitan Thought and the Idea of the West: Voices From Weimar. [REVIEW]Thomas Kemple - 2018 - Theory, Culture and Society 35 (7-8):319-324.
    Austin Harrington’s monumental investigation into the ‘radical centrists’ of the Weimar Republic is discussed in terms of key themes such as universalism, cosmopolitanism, and the critique of Eurocentrism that still resonate with recent debates. Contrasting the voices of lesser known critical intellectuals from this period such as Karl Jaspers and Kark Mannheim with the political writings of Max Weber and Georg Simmel, as well as with the reactionary positions of Carl Schmitt and Martin Heidegger, Harrington’s book affords a useful critical (...)

    A Century After Weber and Simmel.Thomas Kemple - 2020 - Theory, Culture and Society 37 (7-8):421-430.
    This essay reviews two recently published volumes of the Max-Weber- Gesamtausgabe which contain writings on methodological questions and theoretical problems concerning ‘objectivity’, ‘interpretive understanding’, and ‘value-freedom’. Since many of these texts explicitly address Weber’s views on the writings of Georg Simmel, the essay treats these volumes as an occasion to commemorate the legacy of these two classic theorists of modern capitalism a hundred years after their death. In addition to considering new scholarship on these thinkers, the essay also highlights their (...)
