Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Consensus plays a key role in a large number of philosophical debates. Consensus and closely related concepts such as agreement work as the crucial conceptual tools in such diverse ventures as the consensus theory of truth, the agreement view of knowledge, recent theories of social facts, theories of democratic legitimacy, and in various debates in applied ethics (e.g., concerning consensual relations). But what does it mean for people to consent? Is consent based on communication, or is there tacit or hypothetical consensus? How could there be communication without prior consent on the topic and means of communication? What are the basic forms of consensus in human development, and how do they relate to the sort of consensus that is possible among linguistic practitioners?
In this course, we pursue this and related issues on the base of classical and contemporary texts from a number of philosophical disciplines.
