Charles Baudelaire discusses the flaneur as an individualonewho is searching, “for that quality which you must allow me to call ‘modernity’…”, searching by roaming the ‘desert of human life’, of fashion, of anything that will help in finding meaning.

Georg Simmel describes in The Metropolis and Mental Life, the individual must distinguish himself in metropolitan society in order to survive. “This leads ultimately to the strangest eccentricities, to specifically metropolitan extravagances of self-distanciation, of caprice, etc., the meaning of which is no longer found in the content of such activity itself but rather in its being a form of being different.‟
