In the philosophical studies Theoretical Philosophy is as fundamental as the study of Physiology in Medicine. It aims to bring out the first elements of the essential questions of human thought, without limiting itself to an analytical decomposition or a historiographical survey. His critical and multi-perspectives syntheses - albeit nourished by the necessary philological and historical-cultural mediations - engage themselves directly and immediately with the weight and consequences of things to think about.

Learning to recognize the multiple meanings, stratifications and references of an important philosophical text.
Learning to focus more on the right questions than on the answers.
Learning to articulate discourses aiming at justifying your own claims to truth.
Learning to select reliable document bases.
This course is intended for students enrolled in the second year and therefore it would be inadvisable for the first year students.
As a fundamental pivot of modern European culture, Kant's critical thinking presents co-ordinates, questions and possible solutions that are simply decisive, even beyond the boundaries of any degree course in philosophy.
Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason (selected parts).
The examination of this first part will be written. The student will be offered four or five open questions, consisting of some brief textual passages - taken from Kantian works - upon which one has focussed during the lessons. Duration of the written test: maximum two hours.
Lectures will give space to the direct reading of texts, projected on screen, and to a wide interlocution with the students.

This subject deals with topics related to the macro-area "Poverty and inequalities" and contributes to the achievement of one or more goals of U. N. Agenda for Sustainable Development
