Axel Honneth will study the long-run social consequences of the ongoing dissolution of the integrative force of contract-based work. His project will be partly philosophical, investigating the role of socially recognized work for the self-understanding of citizens, and partly socio-theoretical, examining the causes for the exploding crisis of work.
