The article starts from Simmel’s ethical proposal in Das individuelle Gesetz (1913) and discusses its theoretical gist: the criticism of Kant’s universal-rational imperative. By comparing the two authors, in the light also of Kant’s writings on philosophy of religion and history, there do emerge both the partiality of Simmel’s approach, unable to grasp the nuances and openings of Kant’s practical thought, and the incomplete "novelty" of the "individual law", divided between the rational demand and the expression of the living individuality peculiar to everyone. The article’s provisional result backs up, therefore, a possible continuity between Simmel and Kant, instead of a decided fracture between their theories.
