ABSTRACT This article identifies, among Georg Simmel's various writings, his conception of one of modern social theory's founding concepts: the tension between individual and society.

In this article we argue that Simmel’s objective in founding a science of society cannot be separated from his interpretation of modernity. We shall try to bring out what we see as the clear and specific connection between his two projects.
