Learning objectives

Students will acquire an in-depth knowledge of the main theories of the absolute developed in the history of philosophy. The main critical nodes of the philosophy of relationship will be explored from a perspective that enhances the concept of the absolute, highlighting the tensions and unexplored potential of the absolute in response to these currents. Due account will be taken of discussions of the absolute outside of strict philosophy, including the field of theoretical physics, to show how the concept of the absolute cuts across and influences different areas of thought and research. Students will develop the ability to critically analyze philosophical texts on the absolute, recognizing the main arguments, presuppositions and implications. This includes the ability to compare different theories of the absolute and to evaluate their internal coherence, their response to the philosophy of relation and their effect on contemporary thought. Students will learn to formulate their own philosophical arguments, both orally and in writing, with particular emphasis on defending the value and relevance of the absolute as opposed to dominant relational theories: this includes the ability to read critically and to situate the debate on the absolute all within broader cultural climates, the ability to integrate knowledge and methods from other fields of study into the philosophical debate on the absolute, promoting a richer and more multifaceted understanding of the concept. By incorporating these objectives, the course aims to provide students with a solid understanding of the concept of the absolute and its theoretical implications, as well as developing critical, argumentative and interpretive skills that make them free and independent thinkers, capable of navigating and contributing to contemporary philosophical debate.

Prerequisites and basic notions

No prerequisites.

Program

WHAT IS PHILOSOPHY?

Heidegger in his "What is Called Thinking?" says that the brightest and clearest manifestation of the absolute in philosophy is the Hegelian identification of Being and Thinking. After Hegel, what happened to the absolute in philosophy? It seems to have disappeared. But then we take up "What is philosophy?" by Deleuze and there we find it written that philosophy is the construction of concepts, which is not very different from what Hegel said, especially when Deleuze writes that «the concept is defined through the inseparability of a finite number of heterogeneous components covered from an absolute point of flight». Even if sometimes we feel like we have left it behind, the absolute returns, especially if we do philosophy. Starting from Deleuze's book, we will try to understand what Heidegger and Agamben said about the philosophical exercise in the name of the identity between Being and Thinking.
