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 issues 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.
Good acquaintance with the philosophical grammar of traditional ontology
Title. Historicity and Event. The "Contributions (Beiträge) to philosophy" by Martin Heidegger.

Considered by many scholars, first of all by Pöggeler and Von Hermann, the Heideggerian "true great work" after "Being and Time", the "Contributions to philosophy" document a turning point (Kehre) that does not say 'no' either to the Heidegger's moves of the Twenties, or to the history of metaphysics. The course aims to bring out the experience of Being (of the beings) as a beginning that opens up possibilities, starting from a radical rethinking of 'historicity' and of 'event'.

Martin Heidegger, Contributions to Philosophy: (From Enowning), translated by Parvis Emad, Indiana University Press, 2000.

As far as this first part of the course is concerned, the exam will be written and will consist in four passages, taken from the texts in the syllabus, to be illustrated.
The course includes 6 hours of weekly lessons.
