ABSTRACT
This article provides intellectual context for a translation of the article "Soziology der Konkurrenz" or "Sociology of Competition" by the scholar Georg Simmel. The author discusses the connections between that article and the sociological analysis of competition in capitalist societies, a field that Simmel studied in related articles and books published between 1890 and 1908. Simmel believed that competition evolved as an expression of individualism in modern society. Simmel's insights into the moral and legal issues surrounding economically and socially competitive behavior are analysed.
