Learning Objectives

The course aims in general to present legal philosophical thought  starting from a historical reconstruction of the main theories of philosophy of law.

The specific aim consists in introducing students to the problematic relationship between legal rule and ethical pluralism in the complex contexts of contemporary society.

Program

The program is divided into two parts.

The first part is dedicated to the historical framing of the philosophy of law, through the reconstruction of the main philosophical currents: natural law theories, legal positivism, and anti formalist movements.

The second part is aimed at the relationship between law, morals, and ethics, having as its objective the problematization of practical conflicts: the cases in which the plurality of moral orientations clashes with the selective necessity of the rule and the juridical decision.

Bridging Courses

There is no obligation of prerequisites to access the course. 

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Learning outcomes:

a) knowledge and understanding of sufficiently deepened philosophical theories to develop, on the one hand, an autonomous critical capacity in observing juridical phenomena, escaping ideological simplifications that accompany the evaluation of, and, on the other hand, an adequate cultural sensitivity and methodological useful to approach the complex contexts of relational life that the law is called to regulate  (Knowledge and understanding);

b) demonstrate the ability to solve theoretical and applied problems in interdisciplinary contexts relating to the fields listed above, including through participation in workshops and study groups (Applying knowledge patience and understanding);

c) demonstrate the ability to integrate their own knowledge and making judgments in theoretical situations or complex practices relating to the areas listed above, which will be expressed through active participation in discussions with the teacher and among students themselves, in particular during workshops and seminars (Making judgments);

d) demonstrate the ability to communicate the acquired knowledge in a clear, essential and scientifically correct shape (Communication);

e) demonstrate the ability to develop their own learning with autonomy and critical sense. This ability will be encouraged during the entire course by the teacher and will be evaluated on examination (Learning skills).

Attending students will be able, at their option, to partecipate to an intermediate test, which will take place at least one week after the end of the lessons, whose date will be agreed within the first month of the course. This intermediate verification aims mainly at testing the progress in learning and to experiment contents of the exam. In case of a positive outcome, the student will be able to use it, integrating the evaluation obtained with the oral test he will have to take during the official exam. In any case, the student can choose not to avail himself of the intermediate verification or of the outcomes of the test and to support the entire exam in the oral modality.
