Learning Objectives

The course is intended to lead the student in the lecture of philosophical classics.

Particular attention will be reserved to the acquisition of the specific philosophical terminology and to the analysis of fondamental problems and concepts considered and discussed.

Program

The objective of the course is to examine a few fundamental themes in the historical and conceptual development of western thought, from Antiquity to Modern Age. Through  a reading of Seneca’s Letters and Spinoza’s works (particularly his Ethics) the close relation established by both authors among ontology, physics, psychology and ethics will be considered. The understanding of reality – considered as a whole and as a totality of things (God, nature, the world) – associated to the investigation on man’s physical and psychological nature in his relation to the whole, allow the existence of ethics and the search for human well-being (beatitudo, libertas, happiness).
