Simmel’s lesson highlights some possible weaknesses of the anthropological vision that supports the modern and, in some ways, also the post-modern socio-economic model: the individual-society dualism. It identifies some challenges in terms of thought and practice in order to overcome that dualism, but without slipping in monism – the biggest of all being the challenge of re-thinking the origin and its “unity”, through an alternative conceptualisation of the individual-society relationship.
