CRITICAL THEORY AND THE CONCEPT OF SOCIAL PATHOLOGY
A Two Day Conference:
Presented by the Research Centre for Social and Political Thought, University of Sussex
September 13th-14th 2017
University of Sussex (Brighton)
The theme for this event is ‘Critical Theory and the idea of Social Pathology’. This is a topic of increasing importance to philosophy and critical social theory, as a way of capturing what is problematic with any social system or association. But it is also controversial; In the light of what, could one appropriately designate a social order as pathological?
However, the term and its normative meaning, is also highly contested. All sides of this vibrant debate will be interacting here.
The topic of the conference builds on and broadens work already published in the Centre’s journal, Studies in Social and Political Thought, vol. 25 on Pathologies of Recognition. It broadens the topic out to embrace more general question about the relation between critical social theory and the idea of social pathology.
