2018-2 Semester

DISCOURSE ETHICS: ITS SCOPE AND LIMITATIONS

PresentaTIOn

Philosophy and Critical Theory is a project of academic excellence in the Faculty of Philosophy and Literature at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. Within the course, both teaching and research are carried out with a focus on the dissemination of critical theory and thought understood in terms of not only the critical Frankfurt School, but also Latin American critical philosophy and other epistemic regions of the southern hemisphere. Teaching and research activities are aimed at (1) the education of our students in contemporary topics on philosophy and critical theory, (2) the development and dissemination of contemporary philosophical as well as socio-philosophical debates and (3) the strengthening of the National Autonomous University of Mexico for these kinds of debates. Our students and the philosophical community in general are warmly welcomed to consult the future editions of the Philosophy and Critical Theory Course.

ON THE 2018-2 COURSE

For the 2018-2 semester, the Philosophy and Critical Theory Course is devoted to a revision of discourse ethics represented primarily by Karl-Otto Apel and Jürgen Habermas. A balanced overview of discourse ethics will be presented with the presentation by diverse and well-known specialists in the field of practical and theoretical philosophy. Among those joining us this semester are Matthias Lutz-Bachmann, Dorothea Apel, Enrique Dussel and Carlos Pereda.
