"My work focuses on social theory, historical sociology and political anthropology, in particular on historically and anthropologically oriented social theory. Its focus is to reassess the links between Europe, modernity, and the processes of globalization, which is analyzed using concepts developed by anthropologists and focusing on the long-term historical conditions and effects of religious and cultural developments, situated broadly within the approach of Max Weber, but going substantially beyond by incorporating the sociology of the Renaissance, and extending to the role of cultural processes like the re-birth of theatre (opposed strongly both by the medieval Church and Platonic philosophy) in the rise of the modern world."
