"What is critique?" is a question borrowed from Michel Foucault who delivered a lecture with this title in 1978. Foucault conceives critique in the modern Western world as "a certain
way of thinking, speaking and acting, a certain relationship to what exists, to what one knows, to what one does, a relationship to society, to culture, and also a relationship to others that we could call, let's
say, the critical attitude." In January and February we will read the entire text in a reading group.
