Skills
Topic Description Research area
Political philosophy and sexuality, Queer theories, Theories of radical democracy From 1900 onwards, a by now broad tradition of critical thinking has been problematizing the relationship between politics and sexuality from a radical democratic poin of view. At least three theoretical approaches exists that, each in its own way, have confronted the Freudian concepts of drive, desire, and identification, developing different visions of that relationship between politics and sexuality: 1) Freudomarxist theories of sexual liberation, 2) social constructivist theories of sexuality and performative theories of gender, 3) antisocial queer theories.
