In this summer school module, we dive into the connection between modernity, knowledge and social pathology. We engage in debates about crucial issues like fake news, radicalization, and the knowledge crisis. We're faced with questions: Can knowledge be a solution to our societal problems, or does it somehow contribute to them? Is there really a knowledge crisis, and if so, how do universities respond?

We'll explore different viewpoints, mainly critical theory and functional approaches, to gain a comprehensive understanding.
