Two essays or alternatively lecture diaries.
Topic 1: The political, its meaning and relevance for political philosophy (on the basis of the lecturers, the discussions and the texts of Lefort, Mouffe, Arrendt and Rancière)
Topic 2: Deliberative democracy and its contemporary challenges (on the basis of the lecturers, the discussions and the texts of Chambers and Benhabib)
An lecture diary consists basically of explicating the main points taken up in the lectures, texts and discussions as well as reflections on them. An essay is a more composed presentation and reflective discussion of the topics in question.
