Contemporary theorists write against the background of an intellectual tradition of critique which characterised the European Enlightenment. This course offers ten introductory lectures to a number of thinkers who have engaged with the question of critique, anticipating it, undercutting its premises, or otherwise considering its limits. The sessions build on the first series of Tradition of Critique lectures but doesn’t require familiarity with the thinkers covered there: rather we offer a solid introduction to issues that sit in the background to critical concerns of much contemporary research in the arts, humanities and social sciences.
The lectures are on Mondays (starting on 2 October January) at 6pm in A48 Clive Granger Building, where you can also register (no pre-registration required). You can attend as many lectures as you wish; if you attend seven or more lectures, you will be eligible for a certificate of course attendance.
