Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course is open to all doctoral students, but especially targeted towards those whose research is in
some way related to normativity. The course ‘doubles’ as the colloquium of the research project Forms of
Normativity – Transitions and Intersections. Talks are advertised and open to the general public.
This course is meant to support doctoral students in their research by providing them with an opportunity
to get feedback on their research, no matter at what stage, and to practice their presentation and discussion
skills.. Students are particularly encouraged to present early stage research and ‘test drive’ new ideas.
There will be special emphasis on the development of a viable research plan.
In each session one participant will give a presentation on a topic from their own research, followed by
constructive discussion by the entire group. A written version of the talk should be circulated one week
before the presentation. Each participant should give at least one presentation. If available, some session
or sessions may also be devoted to the discussion of a previously agreed and studied text, or to discussing
the work of a visiting speaker.
Engagement with the philosophical research of colleagues and from other areas of philosophy, presenting
one’s own work in front of others as well as constructive and critical discussion of philosophical theses
with others are important elements in the development of any researcher in philosophy. This helps, for
example, in the development of the following abilities:
1. Presenting effectively, coherently, comprehensibly and within the available time, pitched at a
level appropriate to your audience.
2. Constructive engagement with other philosophers’.
3. Productive and constructive discussion about philosophical theses (one’s own or others’).
4. Background knowledge and competence outside one’s own narrow research area.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Passing the course requires:
● Active participation in discussions.
● Submission of a written version of the talk to be presented (5000 words max.).
● Presentation (20–40 min) and subsequent critical discussion.
You are assessed first and foremost based on how you present your work (i.e., your skills in exchanging
philosophical ideas with others), not based on what you present (i.e., the soundness of your ideas).

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Minimal requirement: active participation, one presentation on own research, circulated in advance.
The aim of the course is to help you exchange ideas with others. You will therefore not be graded based on the quality of the work you present, but based on how seriously, respectfully, and constructively you
interact with colleagues. This does require, however, that you give a well-prepared presentation and make adequate materials available in advance, so that your colleagues, too, can prepare. It does not require that your research is ready for publication, beyond criticism, or free of error.
