Learning Objectives

The course aims to analyze some of the main lines of Western political thought of modernity and the contemporary age , identifying the constitutive moments , the tensionie , the consequences for the contemporary world.The course theme is the relationship between constituent power and constituted power framed in key moments of the formation of political modernity and in the long process of crisis and transformation of the figures of modern political thought in the history of the twentieth century until the threshold of the third millennium.

Program

The first part of the course will be devoted to the understanding of continuity, and broken between the political philosophy of late medieval and the genesis of modern political theory, identifying the two decisive moments in reflection Machiavellian and theological-political doctrines of the Reformation and the Counter ( with a digression on the Arab political thought of the decline). Particular attention will play following the study of the scientific paradigm Hobbesian and its relevance to later thinkers, both in partial perspective of continuity -Locke - and in that criticism more or less radical - the Scottish Enlightenment, Spinoza. A third important step is given by the analysis of the American and French revolutions, interpreted as times when the rush theoretical tensions generated in the course of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but which at the same time open to the political reflection of the contemporary age. The latter will be highlighted the emergence of the issues of democracy and socialism as a theoretical spaces of collective emancipation, and then switch to a synthetic reconstruction of the debate on totalitarianism, and finally to a brief discussion of the concepts of "social state", welfare and progressive democracy after World War II.
