Tradition of Critique III lecture series

B62, Law and Social Sciences Building University Park
Tuesday 26th September (09:00) - Wednesday 13th December 2017 (23:00)

Tradition of Critique III: Surveying the intellectual tradition of critique characterising the European Enlightenment

Mondays 6-8pm, A48 Clive Granger Building

Tradition of Critique III introduces and explores some of the ways in which a range of thinkers have addressed the concerns, questions and problems of philosophical critique. How have the challenges of critique been extended, refined and modulated and what issues does this raise for how we understand the lineages of thinking that have taken up this idea? Tradition of Critique III builds on discussions developed in the first Tradition of Critique series but can be taken with no prior knowledge of the thinkers that were addressed in the Autumn semester.

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.
