Richard Sennett: Obsession and Handcraft
Wednesday, 28th May, 19h, Liebieghaus

Richard Sennett’s book „The Craftsman“ was published in January 2008 and has been discussed intensively in the newspapers. When Sennett talks about handcraft or craftsmanship, he isn’t talking about technical practice. He is describing a fundamental human impulse, namely the attempt to go for something for its own sake in the best manner possible. Sennett sheds light on the extreig of philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein to design and construct his sister’s house on Kundmanngasse in Vienna.

Sociologist Richard Sennett, born in 1943, is one of the most popular theorists and critics of capitalism. He teaches at the London School of Economics and New York University.
