Class hours: 21

Credita (ECTS): 3

LM-OTSpecialization in Philosophy

Year: 1st–2nd

course not activated a.y. 2021-2022

Course held in Italian

The course proposes itself as applied theoretical and ethical dialogue about the meaning, forms and delineations of Trinitarian ontology in the strict sense and of a relational ontology in the broad sense, as well as about the categories of thought and the associated themes in direct interaction with professors from other academic institutions and from different disciplinary areas, both from Italy and abroad. The specifically laboratorial nature of the course implies the active participation of the students under the guidance of the responsible professors and in dialogue with the invited specialists. It involves:

  • a lesson providing the framework for the laboratorial method utilized and the outline of the course schedule, which varies from year to year;
  • three one-day (6-hour) meetings with each of the invited specialists, which includes two moments: an exposition of the proposal presented by the invited professor, followed by ample dialogue about the proposal in the perspective of Trinitarian ontology;
  • a final meeting in which the professors of the course, in continued dialogue with the students, draw conclusions and evaluate the results of the previous meetings.

Since this is a workshop for in-depth study in action, students are required to actively participate in the lessons and to write a final paper in reference to one of the proposals presented during the course or to a relevant topic agreed upon with the professors.

Bibliographical references and materials are made available for each appointment.
