Who is Ole Thyssen?

Ole Thyssen is a Danish philosopher and sociologist. Thyssen is a MA from the University of Copenhagen from 1971, and he became a Doctor of Philosophy from that same university in 1976. He started out as a marxist philosopher, writing about psychoanalysis, Karl Marx and Wilhelm Reich. Beginning in the mid-1980s, however, his focus has gradually shifted towards the sociological systems theory of Niklas Luhmann, and much less political themes.

In the mid-1990s he was appointed Professor at the Copenhagen Business School, where he was also one of the initiators of the combination MA degree in Business Administration and Philosophy in 1995.

Recent works by Thyssen have focused on management philosophy and values-based management, as well as on a number of sociological themes. Most are based on Luhmann's systems theory.
