Content

What is critical thinking? This question seems more relevant than ever in an era of ‘post-truth politics’ and ‘alternative facts’, where it can be difficult to separate conspiracy from critique. This module explores some of the most important post-war continental social-philosophical theories and their consequences for disciplinary thinking in the humanities and social sciences. Learning about these theories will allow you to better understand and gain new insight into contemporary societal problems. The guiding notion in this course is that of critique, as developed by the Frankfurt School. We investigate the relation between society and the knowledge produced and methods used by social sciences and humanities (but also by medical and environmental sciences). We focus on critical theory (Habermas, Frankfurt School), poststructuralism (Foucault), feminist critique, postcolonial critique, tentacular thinking (Haraway) and critical realism (Latour).
