Learning outcomes

The second module of the course of History of philosophy A (i) aims to provide students with a whole and comprehensive picture of Western Latin civilization from the 4th to the 14th century.
By the end of the course, students are expected to possess a sufficient knowledge of all the subjects addressed during the lessons, and sufficient communication skills in order to critically express them using a conceptually correct philosophical language.

Program

Main characteristics and topics of medieval thinking
The course will focus on the main and most distinctive features of Western Latin medieval civilization, assuming that only a reconstruction of the whole picture of the many and often conflicting notions, values, and perspectives that punctuated its history may help us to reconstruct the way medieval men felt, lived, and thought. In order to achieve this, the course will rely on class lessons and the usage of manual; precedence will be given on focusing on some chief philosophical issues of particular importance over the usual historical method. Students will need to demonstrate they possess and adequate knowledge of the following authors: Augostine, Boethius, Eriugena, Anselm of Canterbury, Abelard, Thomas Aquinas, Bonaventure, Duns Scotus and Ockham

Classes will deal with the fundamental notions of Western Latin medieval philosophy, from Augustine to William of Ockham. In order to achieve this, we will use the e-learning website of the university, where the audio files of the lessons and all the texts that are not part of the course bibliography will be uploaded. The audio files of the lessons are an essential and compulsory part of the course bibliography. Students are warmly encouraged to write a paper, which it will be read and discussed in the classroom.
Meeting hours for students are scheduled during the whole academic year: days and hours may be found at the personal webpage of the teacher, and are constantly updated. Fixing a personal appointment is not compulsory. Dates and hours of the single lessons as well as their topics are provided before the beginning of the course; any variation will be promptly communicated in the News section of the teacher’s personal webpage.
Students who will not attend classes can choose a more personal approach to the course (to be jointly decided with the teacher), if they wish so, and study one of more additional text(s) beside those listed in the course bibliography.

The subjects and the contents of the books listed in the general bibliography, as well as the lessons and tests possibly performed during the course, are coherent with the program. Further material may be uploaded on the e-learning website of the university.

Presumptive calendar of course lessons
14-15-16-21-22/11: What are the Middle Ages? Faith-reason, faith and reason, faith or reason? – The problem of the heritage of the Classical world and the naissance of christiana philosophia: did the Middle Ages actually exist? – Augustine and the foundation of the Middle Ages – Thomas Aquinas and the rediscovery of Aristotle – The final assault against philosophy in the 14th century.
23-28/11: Nature and God, the divine and the cosmos: various conceptions of nature and the first steps of science.
29-30/11: Medieval aesthetics: the gothic cathedral as theological beauty.
6-7-8-12-13-14-19-20-21/12: Virtue and happiness: medieval ethical thinking.

Examination Methods

In order to pass the exam, students will need to show that:
- they possess a sufficient knowledge of the main conceptions and authors (or schools) of medieval thinking;
- they are capable to express the acquired notions and critically elaborate them by operating autonomously and using a sufficiently appropriate and precise philosophical language.
The competence of all students, either those who attended the course or those who didn’t, will be ascertained by means of an oral examination about the authors, the texts and the subjects discussed during the classes. The final score will be expressed in /30s.
