Renowned German sociologist Ulrich Beck has died at the age of 70.

Renowned German sociologist Ulrich Beck has died at the age of 70. Like many sociologists, I was influenced by his writing and also like many others, I did not always agree with his theories. Either way, Beck never failed to challenge our sociological imaginations in an esteemed international career spanning over two decades. He argued that applied sociology was prolific, but he compelled us to take back control of how our knowledge is used and reimagined by the public.

RIP 1944-2015.
