Part of the SPAH Seminar Series, Dr Rachel Fraser gives a talk on 'The Limits of Ideology Critique'.

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. 

About the speaker:
Rachel is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University Oxford, and a Tutorial Fellow at Exeter College. She works on a range of questions in philosophy in epistemology, philosophy of language, and feminist philosophy.
