Description


The Limits of Ideology Critique

Rachel Fraser (Exeter College, University of Oxford)


The tradition of ideology critique promises a lot. It promises to be critical of the existing social order. (Good!) But it promises to generate this critique without appealing to ‘external’ normative standards. In this talk I argue on meta-normative grounds that ideology critique cannot make good on these promises.


This event will be broadcast live from Senate House via Zoom. If you choose to attend in person please adhere to the University of London guidance to wear face coverings at all times while in the building and maintain social distancing whenever possible. 

For those who intend to join virtually the link to the zoom meeting will be emailed to you upon registration. 



The Institute of Philosophy hosts a regular workshop series entitled ‘The Practical, the Political, and the Ethical’. The series was created in 2015 by Véronique Munoz-Dardé (UCL) and Hallvard Lillehammer (Birkbeck) in order to discuss work in progress from visiting speakers. This year the series is convened by Mollie Gerver (Essex) and Jonathan Gingerich (KCL).  Talks are normally 50 minutes (no pre-circulation of the paper), followed by discussion. All are welcome.
