Zygmunt Bauman

Zygmunt Bauman is a shrewd observer of modernity and the mind behind the brilliant concept of “liquid society”, which is an accurate representation of the current condition of our world, in which insecurity, uncertainty, and individualism are the dominant players.
The depth of his sociological analysis has made him the most representative and heeded maître à penser of our time, whose constant critical presence has strengthened and spread since the early nineties, to become the most lucid witness to the crisis of transition between the 20th and 21st century. The roots of this deep crisis can be traced back to the end of ideologies that characterised the seventies and eighties, and the economic crisis of 2008. Other major emergencies converge in this epochal change, including the transition from material to immaterial work, the reality of insecurity and the phenomenon of the great migrations, with the social consequences that are visible to everyone.
To this, we must add globalisation, which began with the economic expansion and the acquisition of world markets by the large multinationals, and has turned out to be a powerful engine of the process of de-localisation of power that can demolish the already fragile system of representative democracy. Moreover, we must not forget that the affirmation of new technologies determines the prevalence of immaterial labour, together with the development of communications at a worldwide level.
Among the major recurring themes that in Bauman’s ideas and which have been consolidated in a clear vision of society, we can find the same great insight into the liquidity of the modern world, which involves the breakdown of the relationship between politics and power, considered to be central to the crisis of nation-states, and the evolution of the idea of community, in light of the introduction of new technologies, to which Bauman attributes a large part of the responsibility for the social change taking place.
