Which truth can claim validity?

A sociological analysis of a philosophical problem.

The current president of the USA has brought the question of which truth actually holds true to worldwide attention, but he is not the first to make it a problem. The problem is as old as mankind. The solution cannot be to count the number of lies. It must first be clear what is truth and what is a lie. Professor Nassehi will present the results of his research, which is currently relevant in every respect.

Prof. Dr. Armin Nassehi

Prof. Dr. Armin Nassehi has taught General Sociology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich since 1998. He covers the broad spectrum of sociology from empirical social research to social theory and 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 comments on many questions of social and political development not only in Germany. His analyses are precise and pertinent and therefore in high demand.

His scientific oeuvre is extensive. His most recent publication is "Muster. Theorie der digitalen Gesellschaft" (2019) and "Das große Nein, sowie Eigendynamik und Tragik des gesellschaftlichen Protests" (2020).
