The history of modern age is the history of the building of the universal concept of human being and of the gradual and progressive achievement of human freedom, in the frame of the democratic State. The class of History of modern philosophy aims to study the philosophical grounds of this age, but also its crisis factors. Modern age has been in fact a battelfield, inside which different and often alternative projects confronted one with the others. Even antimodern tendencies, together with the today dominant postmodern ones, can be unterstood only inside it.
1) The concept of mdoernity; 2) Modernity and emancipation; 3) The stages of Modernity; 4) Modernity and freedom, State and democracy; 5) Hegel and Marx; 6) Antimodernism inside ModernityM 7) Postmodernism.
