Contents:

The seminar will be held in English. It is designed as a reading seminar that requires each student to present one chapter in class. To remedy the shortcomings identified in the existing IR crisis and change literature, the seminar will deal with the notions of ‘reality’ (including a discussion of the problematic notions of ‘mind’ and ‘world’, as well as ethical questions) and ‘difference’ in social theory, philosophy and IR. Term papers will look at different crises in world history in more detail.
