Learning Objectives

Can we still talk about democracy in Italy? Enormous historical changes emptied the instruments of popular partecipation to politics, fostering a neobonapartistic and hypermediatic form of charismatic power and inducing many citizens to abstensionism and an angry but boid protesting. In the same time, every space of public meditation and confrontation are sacrificed to the primacy of improvised decision-making.

Behind these changes, a historical and material process undermined the foundations of democracy preparing a contterattack of the ruling classes against the subordinate ones and spreading a culturale atmosphere marked by individualism and competition.

This cours aim to make students aware of the current transformations in social and political backgrounds whose influence is strongly conditioning towards educational processes.
