Illustration of the history of philosophical thought as an (ambivalent) part of the process of globalization; discussion of relevant discourses on globalization (Postcolonial Studies; Black Theory; Critical Ecology, etc.); reflection on philosophical controversies on globalization.

The process of globalization has been - at least since the realization that the planet Earth is spherical and the (re)discovery of the Americas - a crucial but often misunderstood moment in the history of philosophical thought. This lecture addresses philosophies of an (unequally) globalizing world by (a) exemplifying how philosophical thought has become "globalized" since modernity, for instance by repeatedly justifying (and, more rarely, criticizing) imperialism and colonialism as well as enslavement, (b) by showing the contribution of Postcolonial Studies, Black Theory, and Critical Ecology to a "decolonization" of (philosophical) thought, and (c) by reflecting on what controversial philosophical notions of globalization currently exist.

Media-supported online lectures with discussions.

The first examination date will take place at the end of the lecture, i.e. on 31 January 2023 from 10.15-11.45 am in HS 2. At least two further examination dates can be arranged by email request (andreas.oberprantacher@uibk.ac.at) until the end of the second semester following the lecture.

A total of seven complex reflection and comprehension questions will be asked, which must be answered in writing and two of which may be left unanswered. In terms of content, the entire topic of the lecture is relevant to the examination, i.e. questions can be asked about all individual lecture units.

The following assessment criteria apply:structure, coherence and plausibility of the argumentation; level of reflection; references and contexts; and linguistic correctness.

To be announced in the respective lecture units.
