The teaching is organized as follows:
Fundaments of Philosophy
The course aims to provide students with the basic knowledge of the main theoretical lines of Western philosophical tradition.
At the end of the course, students will be able: to comprehend the texts in the programme, so that they may improve their overall analytic, contextualization and interpretation skills; to critically revise the contents of the course, in order to make autonomous assessments on specific topics; to use properly a basic philosophical terminology; to argument correctly on the main topics of Western theoretical philosophy; to communicate philosophical topics correctly.
The module aims to provide students with the knowledge of the principles that, according to Western philosophical tradition, have shaped human experience. In particular, it will provide them with the knowledge of the reflections on the origin and structure of philosophical concepts, by means of highlighting the convergence between theoretical philosophy and other disciplines, both in the field of humanities (literature, figurative arts, cinema, theatre) and science (psychology, biology etc.)
Students will learn the specific terminology and the main conceptual and methodological research skills that may provide helpful insight in the main topics of contemporary theoretical philosophy. They will also acquire the ability to autonomously make critical assessments on the specific topics dealt with in the module, and to use properly the given bibliographical and multimedia research tools.
The module aims to provide the conceptual, methodological and cultural foundations to promote a survey on the meaning of philosophy as an exercise of maieutic transformation. This objective will also be achieved by enhancing the knowledge of the points of convergence of theoretical philosophy with some other disciplines (in particular, anthropology, sociology and theology).

What does it mean to think? The experience of doing philosophy is inseparable from the ability to think. But what does it really mean to be able to think? Is it a capacity that is assumed subjectively or impersonally? Do you take it individually or collectively? How do these determinations change our own approach to thinking? The course aims to analyze and discuss the implications of thought in the contemporary era and to reformulate also the question of the philosophical discipline as an overcoming of the disciplinary nature of knowledge.

Individual study of the texts in the bibliography will be an integral part of the lectures. An individual reception service is provided at the times indicated on the teacher's web page. Any changes to the calendar of lessons and reception will be communicated on the web page of each teacher. There will be recordings of the lessons and streaming. Any additional teaching material will be reported by the end of the course and, where possible, made available on the online teaching platform. Students not attending the classroom can contact the teacher to discuss doubts and questions concerning their preparation for the exam upon receipt.

Oral examination. In order to pass the exam, students will show that: - they possess a deep knowledge of the main specific issues developed during the course; - they possess also the capacity to make an independent reflection on theoretical implications of such issues, using a pertinent and appropriate language. The competence of all students, either those who attended the course or those who didn’t, will be valued through an oral examination about the specific topics and questions discussed during the classes. The final score will be expressed in /30s.

The next examinations are scheduled for January 18 and February 9, 2020. At the beginning the exams will take place in presence mode. Once the examinations in presence will be completed, we will continue with those via ZOOM, for which it may be necessary to continue in the following days. Those who wish to replace the oral examination with the discussion of a paper are instead invited to make an appointment directly with the lecturer at the time of delivery of the paper.
The video-recorded lessons, present on the Moodle platform, are an integral part of the program to be taken to the exam.
In order to pass the exam, students will have to demonstrate their skills of:
1) having an in-depth knowledge of the main specific themes developed during the course;
2) knowing how to develop a critical reflection, expressed in relevant and accurate language, on their theoretical implications.
The assessment of learning outcomes requires the oral exam aimed at verifying the level of knowledge of the texts in the program.
As an alternative, it is possible to conceive the oral examination as a discussion of a written paper. In this case, the theme of the paper must be agreed in advance with the lecturer. The paper must be about 20,000 characters long and submitted by email at least 7 days before the discussion as a file in Word format, named with the SURNAME and NAME of the student. The paper is to be conceived as an organized summary of the text parts in the program which have aroused the most interest. The final part of the paper is to be dedicated to a brief personal reflection a couple of pages long.
