Educational objectives
Hide
The degree course aims at providing solid undergraduate knowledge of the history of philosophical thought as well as of the history of mankind from antiquity to date, and well-grounded information about the processes of change of philosophical, socio-political and economic processes. The educational programme is structured in a way to provide students with command of the variety of methods and tools for the updating and research in the philosophical and historical field as well as a critical approach to the main issues of the contemporary debate in the specific areas of theoretical, linguistic and logical-epistemological, philosophical and scientific, historical, social, ethical and political, religious and aesthetic research. The course also provides students with: - adequate skills in reading and comprehension of texts and sources in the original language; - argumentative skills, writing and oral communication skills, knowledge of the methods of formal reasoning; - competences in subjects related to psychology, sociology, pedagogy, anthropology, science at large, literature and art, which are complementary to philosophical and historical studies and yet functional to the subsequent professional opportunities; - Mastery of the use of bibliographic tools; - Language skills in at least one European language. The course therefore favors: - The students' disposition to identify, with critical approach, the conceptual structures of historical-cultural processes; - the capability of applying the knowledge of the historical-philosophical tradition to current theoretical research issues, the attitude to establish relations among personal competences and the central issues of current debate to arrive to autonomous judgments on philosophical logical-epistemological, linguistic, aesthetic, historical-social, ethical-political issues as well as on scientific issues and on their impact on public opinion. The degree course provides a group of common activities aiming at basic humanistic training and at the acquisition of core competences in the field of philosophical and historical studies, (at least 60 credits). Related and integrative educational activities are provided in the fields of history, philosophy and human sciences, in a way to enable students to acquire credits useful for accessing high-school teaching as a profession (History, Philosophy or Human Sciences in Lyceum) or to choose other professional profiles. The course may also provide for various curricula, with respect, in particular, to philosophy, history or human sciences.
