“The Double-Sense of The ‘With’ ”

Rethinking Relation After Simmel

(p.31) “The Double-Sense of The ‘With’ ”

Daniel Hoffman-Schwartz

Fordham University Press

This chapter presents a response to Paul Fleming's contribution “The Art of Flirtation: Simmel's Coquetry Without End”. It is divided into two parts. The first part is a close engagement with one of Fleming's six theses on flirtation and its textual basis in Simmel's “On Flirtation”. Specifically, it addresses Thesis 3: “Flirtation offers a unique mode of Mitsein.” It attempts to elaborate the problematic of relation (or “withness”) that Fleming opens in Simmel. The second part deals with the author's own caveat, which attempts to account for the specific exemplarity of flirtation as a topos for theory.

Keywords:   flirtation, Georg Simmel, caveat, topos, Paul Fleming
