Feminist Philosophy Reading Group
Next to the lecture series „Women in Philosophy“ is constituted by the „Feminist Reading Group“. The regular meetings throughout the semester focus on all topics concerning gender. They are a room for open discussion about gender inequality and social grievances, working with contemporary literature addressing these problems but also referring to feminist classics.
Topics covered so far in the Feminist Reading Group:
- "Entitled" by Kate Manne - How male privilege hurts women
- "Das andere Geschlecht" by Simone de Beauvoir - What does it mean to be a woman?
- Radical and moderate philosophical views of pornography
- Miranda Fricker on hermeneutical injustice
