- of the relation between language, material reality and social reality.

At the end of the course, students will have to prove that they:
KNOWLEDGE:
- accurately know the authors and texts of the program,
- and their role in the tradition of Philosophy of language.
ABILITIES:
- are able to expose the subjects of the program in a consequential and concise way,
- have acquired an independent judgement on the subjects of the program.

Program

Course title:
Words, things, power and sovereignty: Foucault as reader of Hobbes

In Hobbes, a conventionalist theory of language serves as a premise to the justification of State sovereignty. This course analyzes such theory in the light of Foucault's archeological epistemology and his genealogical critique of the concept of sovereignty.

Methods:
Lectures based on reading and interpretation of the texts and discussions.
