Read the interview with Matteo Legrenzi, professor of International Relations at the Department of Philosophy and Cultural Heritage, in which he comments on the international situation, a few days after the violent Hamas attack on Israel.
The Department of Philosophy and Cultural Heritage (DFBC) encompasses four main research areas: philosophical science, art history, social science, and education.
Each of these areas contributes to the building of knowledge that is interdisciplinary, international, and characterised by critical thinking. Such knowledge embraces the various branches of philosophy (theoretical philosophy, the philosophy of logic, moral philosophy, political philosophy, aesthetics, the philosophy of language, the philosophy of science), as well as history of the arts (architecture, art, museum studies) and performing arts (music, theatre, dance, cinema, audiovisual media). It also engages with various pedagogical perspectives regarding education, and with the complex and profound changes happening in society, which require new and sustainable models of governance and development.
