M-FIL/07 - HISTORY OF ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY

Period

Sem. 2A dal Feb 18, 2019 al Mar 30, 2019.

Learning outcomes

Formative tasks:
We aim at:
-(knowledge and understanding) offering advanced knowledge on basic subjects, authors and schools within the ancient philosophy;
(communication skills) teaching the proper philosophical terminology and the arguing ability (possibly also in written communication);
-(applying knowledge and understanding) teaching the critical use of original philosophical texts, for acquiring basic philosophical matters and concepts, recalled also by contemporary culture.

Prerequisites: A knowledge of the history of the ancient philosophy (from VIth Century B.C. to 529 A.D.) is previously required (if lacking, it must be acquired or improved). On the contrary a knowledge of the ancient Greek and Latin languages is not required (all the ancient original terms will be translated), although it allows to work easier within this scientific field. An attention to lexical research and an interest in a critical reading of philosophical texts are very useful.

Program

Course's content:
Title: “Plato’s Socrates, dialogue and care”.
We aim at examining some passages of Plato’s texts for showing that the lògos sokratikòs (Socratic dialogue) is the proper philosophical form of a research possible and necessary to the human being (care of the self and other people). We will refer to contemporary authors as well, those who recall and adopt the subject.


Books to be studied
a) General Part:
-for students having never studied it: E. BERTI - F. VOLPI, Storia della filosofia: dall'antichità ad oggi, Edizione compatta, 2 voll. indivisibili, Roma-Bari 2007 (vol. I : from the origins to Neoplatonism);
-for students knowing already something about this subject: P. HADOT, Che cos’è la filosofia antica?, tr. it. Torino Einaudi 1998 (ed. or. Paris 1995);
b) Original and Critical texts:

Examination Methods

Teaching Methods: The course will be carried on by frontal lessons, with an introductory presentation of subjects, with direct reading of the texts on the monographical subject and following discussions. Therefore attendance at classes will be very useful and desirable, though obviously not compulsory.

Assesments: 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. Also the possible papers will be discussed together and evaluated.
