Other research fields include:
Sociology of modern welfare and morals
The book Sociologien om velfærd - gensyn med Emile Durkheim (1998) has as its main topic the relevance of Emile Durkheim for contemporary debates about citizenship and democracy. If the concepts of social bonds and solidarity which have existed from the classical period of the welfare state until today are under revision the question is whether the thoughts of Durkheim have lost relevance too? The articles "Ideer om styring: Michel Foucault og Jacques Donzelot" (1995), and "Risikobegrebet i tysk og fransk sociologisk tradition"(1999) introduces to and takes up ideas of present French thinkers on modern welfare and morals, above all Michel Foucault and Jacques Donzelot.
Computer technology and modern conducts of living
The leading motive of the PhD. dissertation Computerteknologi, rationalitet og moderne livsførelse (1990) is to study the impact of computer technology on the conduct of modern living and its forms of rationalisation. It examines some important fore castings within social sciences, such as the theory of the knowledge society emphasising its links to an early stage of the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Mean while, since the beginning of the 1970ies, the AI has been marked by several controversies and revisions such as Dreyfus & Dreyfus (1986) "Mind over Machines". The PhD. dissertation introduces some of these revisions into the field of social sciences.
History of the intellectuals
Within the frame of sociology of knowledge, the ‘magisterkonferens' (mag.scient.soc.) Den intellektuelle - fra oprører til embedsmand (1986) examines concepts and roles of the German intellectuals of the fin de siècle era compared to those of the 1960ies and 1970ies
