Simmel's view on individual culture is in part that objective culture (the manifestation in culture of social forces) will pose a threat to individual culture through reification (objectification, manifestation) of social influences.

Individual culture: the capacity of individuals to produce, absorb, and control elements of objective culture (Sociological Theory, McGraw-Hll)
