In the material and symbolic space of the industrial metropolis, and in themultiplication of experiences and tools provided by progress, the modern subjectparadoxically discovers himself less able to communicate.Through a reading of the texts of narrators and observers of the time - Simmel, Benjamin, Kafka and Melville - the author focuses on one of the mostintense effects that socio-cultural change of modernity has had on people.
