Great thinkers of the 20th century

ECTS: 2.5 
Number of sessions: 4
Hours per session: 3

This course discusses major thinkers in the Social Sciences and the Humanities in the post-war era. It does so from several perspectives: historical, systematic, and thematic. Thinkers, theories and schools are not discussed in isolation, but in relation to each other and to the context – both academic and socio-political – in which they arose. Similarities, discrepancies, and contrasts are being sought out and investigated. Special attention is paid to 'French thought', in its relation or contrast to other 'continental' thought on the one hand, and Anglo-American developments on the other.
