*Was ist Kritik heute? // What does critique mean today? *
*AG Kritische Wissenschaft *
Open discussion around present-time questions of critique with the AG
Kritische Wissenschaft, and philosophers Michael Mayer and Klaus Holz.
The reading group celebrates its 10th anniversary at >top Schillerpalais
with a seminar on notions of critique in Adorno and Heidegger and with
regards to how their philosophies relate to each other.
The AG Kritische Wissenschaft is an interdisciplinary reading group that
was initiated in the Ev. Studienwerk Villigst in order to discuss
Critical Theory and texts that question traditional ways of thinking.
Text-immanent discussions pose the key concepts of their seminars that
seek to update what critique means today and how we can relate our
academic and societal practices correspondingly. Recent meetings had a
focus on French authors such as Blanchot, Bataille, Barthes, Foucault,
The event is held in German.
