The course introduces the most significant themes and authors of the ancient, late ancient and medieval period. The lessons will follow the historical development of ancient, late ancient and medieval philosophy, from the “pre-Socratic” thinkers to William of Ockham. In particular, the course aims to illustrate the historical and theoretical conditions in which philosophical practice flourishes, with particular attention to Plato and Aristotle, to then deepen the not obvious but propitious encounter between Greek thought and Christian revelation.

The Sophia University Institute is a centre for academic formation and research, where there is interaction between life and thought, as well as among the different cultures and disciplines, in a context with a strong relational structure. It is not a university in the classical sense of adjacent departments, but rather as a laboratory for interdisciplinary and intercultural experimentation. It thus provides a leading-edge experience on the frontier of excellence at the service of humanity and cultural development.
