Andreas Reckwitz (* 1970) is well-known for his books:
(1) The Society of Singularities, about the structure of the current late modern society, in which social systems value singularity and devalue non-singularity. In the processes of singularization, anything but a "liberation of the individual" takes place; rather, it is the disenchantment of the individual through a highly dynamic social fabrication of uniqueness at the level of objects, subjects, events, places and collectives.
(2) The End of Illusions: the belief in permanent social progress, according to Reckwitz, is being replaced by a disillusionment, which is expressed, for example, in the strengthening of populist movements and parties.
Below you can see and hear Reckwitz speak about ways "to break the wall of singularities".
