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.
