The overburdened Society

Febuary 11, 2022

*** The event is canceled ***


Professor Armin Nassehi is one of the leading German and international sociologists. He regularly presents precise and extended analyses of the state of modern societies. In his recently published book with the same title he also chose for his lecture at "Korbinians Kolleg”, Nassehi examines why modern societies are overwhelmed by the crises that are increasingly occurring. People's need to be governed wisely and straightforwardly is being disappointed more and more often. No wonder there is growing unease and dissatisfaction in societies.

Professor Armin Nassehi has taught general sociology at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich since 1998. He covers the broad spectrum of sociology from empirical social research to social theory and the sociology of knowledge. His own methodological approach is influenced by Niklas Luhmann. Since 2012, he has been one of the editors of "Kursbuch", one of the most influential cultural journals in Germany since 1968. Nassehi takes a stand on many issues of social and political development, not only in Germany. His analyses are precise and relevant and therefore in demand. His academic oeuvre is extensive. Most recently published "Muster. Theorie der digitalen Gesellschaft" (2019) and "Das große Nein. Eigendynamik und Tragik des gesellschaftlichen Protests" (2020).
