Curr. 2021 §6 (2) 3: Students are able to characterize and critically reflect the postclassical theoretical landscape in its development, strategies and differences.

"I think there is a danger in thinking of identity and subjectivity as quite deep and quite natural and not determined by political and social fact" (Foucault 1980)

The lecture takes up the Hegelian line of social analysis, which always starts from our historical experience - Who are we? What do we want? What are the conditions of our experience here, today and now? - and reflects this, not least for ourselves. It first introduces the analyses of subject formation in an economised society by Michel Foucault (neoliberal governmentality), Pierre Bourdieu (struggles in the symbolic space), Theodor W. Adorno (exchange society) and other thinkers of critical theory (Habermas, Honneth, Rosa). But secondly, in addition to an orienting retrospective or sideways glance at Marx and systems theory, it also sets out in lecture and discussion with Alain Badiou, Jacques Lacan and Judith Butler on a search for traces of a still outstanding theory of the subject in contemporary neoliberal capitalism.

Lecture, assessment is based on a single examination at the end of the course.
