Ulrich Beck, society, views, transformation, inequality, everyday life


A modern German sociologist investigated the transformation of mo­dern society. He took the post-war era of the twentieth century as an indicator of mea­su­rement. Ulrikh beck writes that the reason for the transformation of society was the increase in the time that was reduced to labor, the increase in earnings and the better education. The process of individualization has improved the quality of life. The boundaries of social classes have expanded. The classes were transformed into layers. The position of women in society has improved qualitatively. But on the other hand, the competition for them in the labor market has grown. Ulrich Beck writes at the end of his research that the threat to the new society is massive unemployment.
