Teaching methods

Lecture and analysis of texts.
Active interaction between the teacher and the students in form of discussion of individual problems of the course. The students must in an alternative way write a short protocol of the lecture which contains the principal arguments of the previous session and is orally exposed at the beginning of the next session.

Assessment methods and criteria

The final exams consist in a paper and an oral discussion. The student has to send to the teacher, at least one week before the oral examination, a paper (9-11 pp.) about a subject of the course. The student must show the ability to develop in a sinthetic way a coherent as well as in-depth discussion of a philosophical question, also using the secondary bibliography. The student must also show the skill to write a philosophical text applying the usual typographical norms. The paper will be evaluated in “trentesimi” and discussed with the student during the oral examination.
The oral examination will focus on the paper and on the texts of the bibliography. The final grade represents the average of the grade of the paper and the grade of the oral examination. The oral examination aims especially to verify: 1. the comprehension of philosophical texts; 2. the ability to think in a philosophical way and apply the learned concepts to specific problems; 3. the appropriate use of the philosophical terminology.
