PHIL 7725 Topics in Contemporary Critical Theory (Spring: 3 )
This course looks at some of the most influential and productive recent contributions to the Frankfurt School tradition of critical social theory in the context of contemporary social and political problems, most of which, as we will see, have international, transnational and global aspects. It consists in essence of a survey of important texts from the three most important recent critical theorists in Germany, Jürgen Habermas, Axel Honneth, and Rainer Forst, and the bodies of theory they have elaborated around the respective paradigms of communication, recognition and justification.
