Learning objectives

The course provides the critical, historical, theoretical and philological means that are useful for dealing with the philosophical genre of ancient dialogue. The course also aims to provide a focus on  core problems and concepts of ancient philosophy. The connections between the Socratic dialogue and the theme of care in the ancient world will be analysed from a historical-critical point of view. The student will gain the ability to argue in contradiction through comparisons and debates. A knowledge of the history of Greek and Latin philosophy (from the 6th century B.C. to 529 A.D.) is required; knowing ancient Greek and Latin is certainly helpful, but not compulsory. Rather, the student will be invited to personal investigation, and critical reading of the philosophical text. Argumentative discourse will be promoted through course attendance and specific activities.

Prerequisites and basic notions

Prior knowledge of the history of ancient philosophy is assumed, not of ancient Greek and Latin. A careful lexical investigation and inclination towards critical reading of the philosophical text is requested.


Course Title and Content: "Caring for the Self and the Other in Socratic Dialogue
The course tackles the philosophical, ethical and anthropological foundations of dialogical thinking in its many facets (refutation, analogy, induction, dialectic). Texts from the first generation Socratics (Plato, Xenophon, Aeschines) will be examined, with the aim of focusing the theme of caring for the self and the other in dialogical praxis. The lines of continuity and discontinuity between the practice of ancient Socratic dialogue and its revival in contemporary philosophies of dialogue (philosophical hermeneutics, philosophical counselling, out-of-court conflict mediation) will also be examined.
The course will be completed by the shared reading, carried out in a workshop setting, of dialogical moments taken from Socratic literature: the workshop moment will imply the active participation in the discussion of the positions sustained in the text and, where possible, a practical application of the dialogical principle of "caring for oneself and for the other".

B) L. Napolitano, Platone e la cura di sé e dell’altro, Milano, Mimesis 2024 (only the first part: p. 1-199).
Recorded lessons will be available on the Moodle platform and are an integral part of the exam syllabus. NB: listening to the recordings does not replace reading the scheduled texts.
PROGRAM FOR NON-ATTENDING STUDENTS: The program for non-attending students is identical to that for attending students, with the exception of the book by L. Napolitano " Platone e la cura di sé e dell’altro", which must be brought in its entirety.
