Learning Objectives

 

The Philosophy of Culture advanced course, with specialized methodologies aimed at satisfying the curricular training of students, aims to outline and analytically and critically thematize the relationship between culture, philosophy, politics and education through the analysis of thought and the work of some of the leading modern and contemporary philosophers. The educational objective is to provide students with the fundamental and critical concepts, methods and orientations essential for their cultural, philosophical and pedagogical training through constant reference to reading and dialogue between Classic, Modern and Contemporary. In particular, in its first part, the relationship between Niccolò Machiavelli's thought and work and the fundamental problems of modern political philosophy will be thematized. In the second part, some elements of conceptual history concerning the philosophical-political problem of sovereignty and power will be dealt with thematically, with particular reference to the relationship between Hobbes and Canetti. In the third part, the subject of thematic and critical discussion will be the reconstruction of Max Weber's political philosophy, with particular reference to his diagnosis of the tragic disenchantment of the modern reinterpreted and interpreted by Jürgen Habermas. Against the background of the issues addressed in the three previous parts, in the fourth part some itineraries of the philosophical twentieth century will be discussed.
