Course Description: Analytical feminist philosophy has established itself in recent decades as an independent academic discipline. Both in philosophy and in feminist theory, feminist philosophy has provided new food for thought. This seminar introduces this relatively new field and provides the opportunity to better understand and use traditional analytical methods in a socio-critical way. The seminar examines current work in feminist analytical philosophy that addresses socio-critical issues. The course covers texts from different areas of analytic philosophy, such as philosophy of language, epistemology, ontology, and ethics. Students discuss how traditional analytical methods can be applied to illuminate and criticize methodology, identity, gender and race, ideology, oppression, etc. Texts by Kristie Dotson, Mari Mikkola, Sally Haslanger, Elizabeth Anderson, Charles Mills, Thalia Mae Bettcher and Elizabeth Barnes are all covered. The seminar language is German, but as the recent debate on analytical feminist philosophy is primarily in English, the seminar requires the ability to read challenging texts in English. 
Language of Instruction: German
