Obiettivi formativi

The course is intended for all students at the Laurea Magistrale (MA) level. The aim is to acquire a knowledge of the topics and themes discussed at class. The instructor’s focus will be on the following skills: understanding, reasoning, contextualizing, and processing.

 

Risultati dell'apprendimento attesi

The evaluation will be based on a final written test followed by an oral discussion. The exam will be centered on the understanding of key notions and theses and on a critical analysis of the main themes developed during the course. The instructor will assess the students’ argumentative abilities and the depth of the theoretical understanding. 
The students will have to demonstrate:
- a deep knowledge of the themes
- analytical and argumentative abilities in the discussion 
- the capacity to integrate different philosophical notions
-the capacity to quickly acquire new notions pertaining to the themes discussed during the course.

 

Programma

The course aims to investigate the latest philosophical research in relation to theories describing the genesis of social reality and that of individual intentionality. We will examine two specific entities: "intentionality" and "documentality". According to intentionalism, society is the result of collective intentionality, and individual intentionality is a primitive. For the documentalistic approach, society is the result of documentality, which is also decisive to the genesis of individual intentionality. Finally, the way in which documentality comes into existence is not construction, but emergence: a long evolutionary chain rooted in our past (and present) animality - relationships of dominance and subordination, marking one's territory and so on. - that generates documentality and its inherently normative nature.

 

Modalità di insegnamento

Lectures. The evaluation will be based on a final written test followed by an oral discussion.

 

Modalità di verifica dell'apprendimento

 To meet the course requirements the students will have to show the ability to present and analyze the topics developed at class; a good mastery of the scientific lexicon; the ability to identify connections and relations of interdependence among the notions and the theses studied during the course.  The final grade is based on a scale of thirty.
