Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course aims to stimulate people to think about technology and politics in a way that links political philosophy to philosophy of technology. Students will read texts in both fields, read philosophers of technology that focus on politics and/or power related themes, and engage in discussions that connect key concepts in political philosophy such as freedom, equality, justice, and democracy to themes/technologies and problems in philosophy of technology.

NOTE ABOUT MY TEACHING POLICY

Teaching is not only about content but also about process and environment, about how we learn together in a course. It is part of my teaching policy to try to make educational processes and environments as participatory and inclusive as possible. I aim at reducing discrimination against people who are less likely to be heard in discussions and, more generally, within the academic context. I explicitly aim to create an educational environment that is supportive of equal treatment of people of all genders, all language levels, all ethnicities, all social backgrounds, introverts, extroverts and others. Everyone should feel welcome in my courses, and everyone is encouraged to participate. I also welcome feedback on my teaching and aim at creating a friendly, interactive, and professional academic learning environment.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

At the end of the course students will have to write an essay (80% of the grade). During the sessions students will hold presentations (20%). Both exercises should aim at connecting the political-philosopihcal concepts to discussions about technology.
