Learning outcomes

Module: II MODULO PARTE (II)
-------
We aim at teaching the use of the proper philosophical terminology (nearly all deriving from the ancient Greek) and the critical reading of original philosophical texts, in order to acquire basic philosophical matters and concepts. Also, through seminars and debates, we aim at making postgraduates to acquire a skill to cross-examination.

Program

Module: II MODULO PARTE (II)
-------
Prerequisites: A general knowledge of the history of ancient philosophy (from VIth Century b.C. to 529 a.D.) is presupposed. Surely s competence in ancient Greek and Latin languages makes it easier the work within this scientific field, however it is not compulsory. An attention to lexical research and an interest in a critical reading of philosophical texts and to arguments are very useful.

Subject of the course: “Self-care and self-trascending starting from Plato”.
Within contemporary philosophical practices the Socratic subject of self-care is very well known and very much praised (it recalls also, in some ways, also Heidegger's notion of Sorge). Neverthelss we need a more deepened research first of all on Plato's dialogues themselves and on the concepts of epimèleia and melète, in order to understand reasons, methods and aims of this Socratic and Platonic self-care. Moreover we need to explore its original cultural dimension and the meaning ('therapeutic' or 'promotive'?) it acquires there. Lastly we need to explore whether it also today can be renewed by a philosophy which claims to be a practical way for changing and improving our lives.

I AND II MODULE (58 hours: Linda Napolitano)
Title: Plato and self-care between ancient and contemporary
-Lecture notes at students disposal (Photocopies Shops “Ateneo” and “La Rapida”)
-Readings from Plato: particularly from: Alcibiade I (Italian text PLATONE, Alcibiade I, Alcibiade II, introduzione di G. ARRIGHETTI, tr. it. e note di D. PULIGA, testo greco a fronte, Milano BUR 1995 e ss.).
-Text: L.M. NAPOLITANO VALDITARA, Il sé, l’altro, l’intero. Rileggendo i Dialoghi di Platone, Milano-Udine Mimesis 2010
(students who have already read this book in some precedent courses will substitute it with: L.M. NAPOLITANO VALDITARA, Pietra filosofale della salute. Filosofia antica e formazione in medicina, Verona QuiEdit 2011)

Didactical Methods: The course will be carried on by frontal lessons, with direct reading of the texts and following discussions. Therefore attendance at classes will be very useful and desirable, though obviously not compulsory.
The same program is valid for students who cannot attend lessons; nevertheless, they must get in touch with the teacher, in order to receive indications on adding texts, whose reading will compensate for lacking attendance: these texts will be agreed for every student, with regard to his previous knowledge, curriculum and interests.

III MODULE (12 hours) (Milena Bontempi):
Office hours: Friday. 14.15-16.00 or by appointment: milena.bontempi@tin.it.
Title: Selfcare among limit, law and freedom: cues from Plato's 'Gorgias'
Content: reading Plato's Gorgias we will explore selfcare as a reply to Sophists' provocations about the limits imposed by laws to men's natural drives. Moreover we will explore the notion of freedom assured by selfcare, in its anthropological and theoretical foundations.
Texts:
-PLATONE, Gorgia (choosing between: ed. Economica Laterza, a cura di F. ADORNO; ed. Bompiani, a cura di G. REALE);
choosing between:
-A BIRAL, Platone e la conoscenza di sé, Roma-Bari Laterza 1997
-S. LAVECCHIA, Oltre l’uno ed i molti. Bene ed essere nella filosofia di Platone, Udine Mimesis 2010
(other indications or substitutions will be agreed during lessons or by email)

IV MODULE (12 hours) (Tommaso Tuppini:)
Office hours: Thursday 14.30-16.30 or by appointment: tommaso.tuppini@univr.it
Title: Heidegger: Care as Being of Dasein
Content: The young Heidegger explained in his classes “the Care-structure of Dasein” as “concern [Bekümmerung]” or “restelessness when facing own Dasein” [Behunruhigung des eigenen Daseins]. Starting from such emotional-psychologic connotation the author of Being and Time moves towards a concept which is pragmatical in a eminent way. Care becomes “the ground problem of existence [das Grundproblem des Daseins]”: it means the univocal way of being for the plural dynamism of life.
Text: M. HEIDEGGER, Being and Time, Chapter VI, §§. 39-44

Examination Methods

Module: II MODULO PARTE (II)
-------
Some oral questions will be put to the student; he will be invited to read and comment some passages of the original texts already read together during classes. As to the basic texts of the course, the student can choose also to write a brief paper (5-10 pp., to be given at least one week before the exam) on some subjects discussed together, or on some passages read during classes: this relation will be orally discussed during the exam.
