PHEB303 Практическа логика


The main objective of the course is to demonstrate the self-problematization of everyday life as seen from contemporary philosophy and sociology and to trace out the parallel development of new conceptual tools in both disciplines. The course is focused on the so-called praxeological turn and considers the philosophical and sociological contexts of the logic of everyday practice, entering into the intellectual worlds of A. Schutz, P. Bourdieu, J. Austin, H Garfinkel, H. Sacks. Notions like multiple realities, indexicality, performativity, instructed actions, congregational work etc, are thoroughly discussed.
