Ivo Možný, born in Prostějov, Czech Republic, in 1932. Ph.D. from Charles University, Prague. Professor of Sociology at Masaryk University, Brno.
Fellow (1 September 1990 – 30 June 1991)
My studies at NIAS produced a text which treats the ongoing social and political changes in Czechoslovakia from the point of sociology of knowledge with the accent on changes in ways of constructing social reality in common sense. After finishing this text I prepared a study entitled The welfare state and state skepticism: can a state work before society exists?
