  • The Social Sciences and Challenging Issues, short lectures / 30h / 3 ECTS / winter semester / dr hab. Lucas Mazur

Scholars have argued that power is one of the most important concepts in all the social sciences (Hearn, 2012). This course will explore how this concept has been historically understood, and the variability we see in how it is understood today. An awareness of the multifaceted nature of power is essential for all social scientists, and especially for people who pursuing careers in those fields traditionally closely linked with debates about power, such as education and the criminal justice system. As the notion of power is what Gallie (1956) called an "essentially contested concept" – meaning that we are all intuitively aware of what the term means despite the often-contradictory nature of those understandings – the course should offer considerable opportunities for lively discussions and debates. This is a wonderful opportunity to practice English in an environment that is comfortable and friendly, but also thought-provoking and intellectually challenging.
