Prof. Dr. Armin Nassehi has held the chair of sociology at the LMU Munich since 1998. At the same time he is and has been a member of numerous expert commissions. Among others, he has been a member of the Bavarian Ethics Council since 2020 and a member of the scientific advisory board of the Fritz Thyssen Foundation. Furthermore, he sits on the "Corona" expert council of the North Rhine-Westphalian government and on the expert committee for combating the pandemic in long-term care in the Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Care. From 2020 to 2021 he is a fellow of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
Armin Nassehi is the author of numerous books. In 2019 "Muster - Theorie der digitalen Gesellschaft" has been published. In it, the sociologist points out that digitisation is only a particularly sophisticated technical solution to a problem that has always been present in modern societies: How does society, how do companies, states, administrations, law enforcement agencies, but also we ourselves deal with invisible patterns?
