Tragic news of Ulrich Beck's death

Posted: January 3, 2015

Ulrich Beck had deeply transformed the social science, the very notion of the modernist project and was also a good friend. We were contemplating together, less than three weeks ago, all the projects we had in common. It is a tragedy. I published many times on his work, including an imaginary dialog for his 60th birtday, and we had a long dispute around cosmopolitics versus cosmopolitanism. Our thoughts are going to his wife Elizabeth and to his team with which we have in Paris many connections. A translation of the obituary published in Le Monde.
