What has been called « the Frankfurt School » fascinates or repulses. The works of the people associated with it leave no one indifferent. Our seminar will be paying attention to the transformations and internal criticism concerning the concept of « emancipation ». We will relate the propositions from the Frankfurt school to those of Rancière, Balibar, Badiou. Why “emancipation”? Because of its relation to liberation, freedom and justice, three concepts at the heart of social and political issues still today. Why “emancipation”? Because of the rhetorical importance of emancipatory discourses of the last two centuries. Why “emancipation”? Because of the transformation of the conditions of work and of the place of “work-labor” in philosophical reflections.
The course will spread out from May to August.
