030080: Racism and Discrimination

2 st., DI 16-18, GABF 05/703

Beginn: 09.10.2018
Veranstaltungsart: Seminar
Module: WM IIb, WM IIIb, EELP II: Practical Philosophy,  EELP Va: Research Module

Racism, one of the most frequently used normative concepts in our everyday language, has grave ethical and political implications and even legal consequences. Could, though, the concept gain a firm foothold in normative grounds, is it of any genuine and/or fruitful use in our moral judgments? The aim of this seminar will be to cast light on the morally relevant aspects of the concept of race – whether biologically founded or socially constructed – regarding these questions. Among the wide range of normative concepts connected to racism, we shall also focus on the relationship of racism and discrimination. The course will, thus, be concerned with certain conceptual works on the nature and meaning of discrimination as well. The questions and problems related to racism and discrimination will be tackled both historically and with regard to current debates.

The seminar will be complemented by a final workshop in January 2019, in which students will have the opportunity to discuss the topics of the seminar with international specialists.


  • A list of literature will be made available in the first session
