Subject Area: Philosophy

This course provides an in-depth engagement with selected themes in social and political philosophy. It will develop your understanding of some of the fundamental social and political challenges our contemporary societies face, and how to address them philosophically. For example, we will discuss the foundational role of recognition for human personhood, sociality, as well as individual and collective identity; the metaphysics of social reality; problems of authority, power and freedom in the modern world; psychoanalysis and the constitution of subjectivity, among others.
