Richard Bärnthaler is an interdisciplinary social scientist. His main research interests are: eco-social transformation, environmental politics, eco-social hegemony, social-ecological economics, sustainable wellbeing, sufficiency economy, foundational economy as well as housing & care. His research is also influenced by his deep interest in the philosophy of science, in particular in critical realism. He is also committed to improving, developing, and re-conceptualizing education in socio-economics (towards social-ecological economics) to enable students to understand and deal with the deeply contradictory structures, and the current transformations thereof, that characterize contemporary societies.
