In recent years, the study of ignorance has developed into a dynamic field that spreads across many subdisciplines of philosophy. What ignorance is, what its normative, ethical, and political dimensions are, how ignorance connects to oppression and injustice, and what kinds of responsibilities toward knowledge we have are some of the questions with which political epistemologists and feminist epistemologists have grappled. 

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the core concepts, questions, and theories in the philosophical study of ignorance. In the course, we will study and critically discuss a range of texts in political epistemology, feminist epistemology, critical race studies, philosophy of social media, and philosophy of science. 

Who can join?

This course is aimed at master’s and advanced bachelor’s level students in Philosophy, Political Science and other social sciences, and PPE.
