Module: I MODULO PARTE (I)
-------
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: Feelings: fear and courage
Content: We begin a didactical experiment expected to cover several Academic Years. It aims at explore role and value of feelings in the relations between man, others and world, particularly in the ancient Greek culture, but even with dialogical reference to the contemporary one. Which is the difference between a ‘passion’ and a ‘feeling’? Can we stress the sharp opposition often imagined between passion and reason, starting just from Plato? Are we obliged only to undergo a passion, or can we rule it someway? Can a feeling help us to know more deeply ourselves and to be in better terms with others and world? The first couple we are going to examine is fear and its opposite, courage, in several ancient authors (Homer, Aeschylus, Plato) and contemporary ones (Hegel, Girard, Kierkegaard). How fear does arise and what is it directed to? And courage simply is its opposite or, better, a ‘wise’ variation of fear itself? Is it a quite outdated virtue, or can it play some role also in the contemporary world? And today, what is right to be afraid of?

I, II AND II MODULE (54 hours: Prof. Linda Napolitano)
Title: Feelings, fear and courage in the ancient culture
I Module:
-Lecture notes at students disposal (with passages by Franzini, Vegetti, Vernant, Napolitano, Lesky; Photocopies Shops “Ateneo” and “La Rapida” and in teacher’s website)

-Critical Text 2: AA.VV., Leggiamoci con cura. Scrittura e narrazione di sé in medicina, ed. by di L.M. NAPOLITANO VALDITARA, CroInforma 2012 (at students’ disposal Photocopy Shop “Ateneo”);

Borrowers: Students aimig at borrowing the contents of these Modules for History of Philosophy A (m) (6 credits), are requested to know the contents of the Module I and to choose among the contents of one of the other ones (I, II or III Module).
