Zygmunt Bauman

Zygmunt Bauman

is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the universities of Leeds and Warsaw, and one of the leading thinkers of our time. He has written extensively on the globalized society, on individualization processes, on shifts in our definitions of ‘public’ and ‘private’, and on the philosophical and moral impact of new capitalism. His notion of ‘liquid modernity’ has influenced international research in sociology and cultural studies. Among his recent books available in Italian are: Individualmente insieme (Diabasis, 2008); La decadenza degli intellettuali (2007) and Modernità e ambivalenza (2010), published by Bollati Boringhieri. Modernità liquida (2002), Modus vivendi (2008), Paura liquida (2008), Consumo dunque sono (2008), Capitalismo parassitario (2009), L’etica in un mondo di consumatori (2010), Vite che non possiamo permetterci (2011) were all published by Laterza.
