Re-searching the Potential of Cultural-Historical Psychology [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Michael Cole | From its founding as an academic discipline, psychology has been divided in its understanding of itself. The project to create a psychology that unifies experimental, 'physiological' psychology and ethnographic, cultural-historical psychology requires a reconfiguration of the disciplinary landscape of the late 19th century that, from our current perspective, appears inter-disciplinary, including, as it does, scholarship from anthropology, sociology, discourse

Appropriation of Freedom: Freud's conception of the individual self-relation [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Axel Honneth | This lecture develops Freud's implicit idea of the freedom of the will. For Freud, the 'healthy' person is very often determined by the same kind of irrational powers to which the neurotic personality is subjected. On the basis of a 'normalised' concept of repression, Freud has to explain how a normal subject should be able to gain emancipation from these unconscious constraints of his or her will.

The soft power of the EU is no longer limited to stabilisation and transformation of societies alone. Europe sets the standard in many fields.

Religious Faith and Human Rights [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr Rowan Williams | The idea of human rights is often traced back to the characteristically religious insight that every individual is unique in the eyes of God. This explanation of why human dignity is important held sway for centuries, but it has lost much of its grip on society in these uncertain, post-modern times. Many adherents of human rights today see no need to root their beliefs in any religious (or specifically Christian) set of beliefs. Indeed some would go so far as to s

Inhuman and Degrading Treatment: the words themselves [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Jeremy Waldron | Many human rights charters contain prohibitions on inhuman and degrading treatment of prisoners and detainees. Terms like "inhuman" and "degrading" are difficult to interpret, but they are certainly not meaningless. It is important to attend to attend to the meanings of the words themselves, as well as to the decisions that courts have made about particular practices. Reflection on the meanings of these highly-charged terms reveals important complexity, whi
