Genealogy in the Humanities invites you to a workshop with Professor Frieder Vogelmann (University of Freiburg), who will speak about “Science as an Antidote to the ‘Post-Truth Era’? Defending Scientific Practices without Scientism”.

Professor Vogelmann is professor for epistemology & theory of science. His work focuses on political epistemology, an emerging field of research in which he pursues the dual insight of early Frankfurt School Critical Theory that epistemology requires social theory just as social theory requires epistemology. He draws on analytic, continental and feminist epistemology, as well as (French) political and social theory/philosophy.

Professor Vogelmann also works on alternative governmentalities, on the concept of responsibility, on the concept of critique and on Michel Foucault’s philosophical method. He is the author of The Force of Knowledge. A Political Epistemology [in German]. Berlin: Suhrkamp, 2022; The Spell of Responsibility. Labor, Criminality, Philosophy (translation of Im Bann der Verantwortung). London: Rowman & Littlefield International, 2017; and Foucault lesen (Reading Foucault). Wiesbaden: Springer, 2016.

The workshop is open to the public. For a copy of Professor Vogelmann’s paper, please email
