M-FIL/01 - THEORETICAL PHILOSOPHY

Period

Sem. 2B dal Apr 12, 2023 al May 27, 2023.

Learning objectives

Ontology
The course of Ontology aims to equip students with the main landmarks and conceptual tools of the philosophical questioning on being.
In addition to the knowledge of the history of Western philosophical thought and its main conceptual lines, particular attention will be given to the knowledge of modern and contemporary philosophical debate. The course aims to develop the following skills:
- ability to understand philosophical texts;
- ability to use an appropriate philosophical terminology;
- ability to compare peculiar aspects of the thought of the past with themes and / or authors of our time;
- ability to communicate philosophical topics with specialists and non-specialists;
- ability to to continue their studies at a MA level.

Prerequisites and basic notions

No prerequisites: just the basic knowledge of the history of philosophy

Program

In the Critique of Pure Reason, up to the Analytic of Principles, Kant outlined a kind of “ontology within the limits of a possible experience”, anti-dogmatic, critical, clearly not empiricist, which identifies the conditions of validity of the notions of ontology in the ways in which reality, as it is known, is "built”.
The contents of the course of Ontology follow therefore the internal division of Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason, which is the topic of both the course and the examination:
1) General introduction (bio-bibliographical) to Kant and, specifically, to the Critique of Pure Reason;
2) Preface to the first and second edition of the Critique and Introduction;
3) Transcendental aesthetics;
4) Transcendental logic: analytic of concepts and analytic of principles;
5) The transcendental doctrine of method.


REFERENCE TEXTS

The texts required are as follows:
• Immanuel Kant, Critica della ragion pura: a selection of texts taken from Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason. All the anthological materials will be uploaded (in full compliance with copyright laws) on the e-learning platform of the University website. Among the versions available of the Critique of Pure Reason, the edition that the teacher recommends to whosoever would buy the complete work is that one published by Bompiani (2004 or later reprints), Italian translation with the original German text, edited by Costantino Esposito.

The reference texts are the same for both attending students and those who can not attend lectures.

For attending students and not attending ones interested in further detailed study, the following optional texts are also recommended:
1) Sofia Vanni Rovighi, Introduzione allo studio di Kant, La Scuola, Brescia 1997 (or any other reprint);
2) Silvestro Marcucci, Guida alla «Critica della ragion pura» di Kant, Laterza, Bari-Roma 2011;
3) Raffaele Ciafardone, La critica della ragion pura di Kant. Introduzione alla lettura, Carocci, Roma 2012.

Additional texts and teaching materials will also be communicated on the e-learning platform of the University website.

Didactic methods

The teaching methods consist of traditional lectures (face-to-face and online, that is "blended", according to the dispositions of the University of Verona and by means of the tools made available by Univr) axed on the reading and the comment on a selection of texts taken from Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason, with the aim of transmitting: 1) the key concepts of both ontology and philosophy of knowledge or gnoseology; 2) the key concepts of both Kantian philosophy and its exegesis; 3) the critical means that are useful for understanding (and for dealing with) the problematic issues involved in Kant’s thought and, more generally, the issue of the critical realism.
By means of power point presentations, the general introduction (bio-bibliographical) to Kant and his philosophy will be more clear and immediate.

Each lesson will be recorded and (together with the materials examined during the course) uploaded on the e-learning platform of the University (as mp3 files, or file video via Panopto), with the aim of easing the study for both attending students and those who can not attend lectures.
During the academic year, an individual consultation service is also available (at the teacher's study, by e-mail, or via Zoom/Skype) at the times indicated on the web pages (and readily updated), or agreed with the teacher (especially in the case of telematic meetings).

Any suspension of lectures for academic reasons will be readily communicated in the classroom, on the web site, and on the e-learning platform forum.

At the first lesson, students will receive the full calendar of teaching activities, together with the dates and classroom (real or virtual) in which the lessons will take place and a synoptic presentation of the topics of the course.
Any suspension of lectures for academic reasons will be readily communicated in the classroom, on the web site, and on the e-learning platform forum.

Learning assessment procedures

The assessment of the learning outcomes of both the key concepts and the issues which concern the themes and the philosophers examined will be done by means of an oral examination (face-to-face or via Zoom/Skype, according to both the University dispositions and the sanitary conditions related to COVID-19 emergency) concerning the programme carried out during the course.

The examination is the same for both attending students and non-attending ones.

Evaluation criteria

The final examination consists of questions to test the critical and argumentative abilities of the students, the textual exegesis, the conceptual clarity, and the acquisition of an adequate philosophical vocabulary.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The grades are expressed in thirtieths (and in special cases the mention of praise is also granted).
