Mission of Sociology in the Time of Liquid Modernity

Mission of Sociology in the Time of Liquid Modernity

This video was recorded at Eminent Speakers at the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana. Zygmunt Bauman was awarded the European Amalfi Prize for Sociology and Social Sciences in 1992 and the Theodor W. Adorno Award of the city of Frankfurt in 1998. He has been awarded in 2010, jointly with Alain Touraine, the Príncipe de Asturias Prize for Communication and the Humanities. The University of Leeds launched the The Bauman Institute within its School of Sociology and Social Policy in Bauman's honour in September 2010. Bauman's published work extends to 57 books and well over a hundred articles. Most of these address a number of common themes, among which are globalization, modernity and postmodernity, consumerism, and morality. Excerpt taken from Wikipedia.
