Beschreibung

Rezension

"This is a fascinating read, truly imaginative and remarkably wide-ranging. Andreas Reckwitz presents a compelling, novel outlook on the global challenges ahead."
Patrick Baert, University of Cambridge
 
"In The End of Illusions, Reckwitz conducts a 'socio-analysis' of a patient known as late modernity and reveals the contradictions, paradoxes, and anomalies that characterize contemporary society. The hard work involved in this sobering analysis pays off: while pathways toward a better society are neither obvious nor linear, embracing today's ambiguities opens up spaces to reimagine our shared futures."
Urs Gasser, Harvard University
