Welcome to the website of the department for sociology of knowledge and theory of society.
We focus on the terms and functioning of societal knowledge from daily routines and beliefs to academic work; on a more general level, basic concepts and theories of social science are critically examined. Special areas of work are the sociology of humanities, political theory and critique of ideology, aesthetics and sociology of culture. On the following pages you will find an overview of our research and teaching activities as well as information on department faculty and staff.
The department for sociology of knowledge and theory of society is part of the 'Laboratory of the Enlightenment' at the FSU Jena. For more informationen please follow the link .
