Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide the main conceptual elements to observe - from both critical-dialectic and constructivist theory of communication systems perspectives - the socio-historical genesis of some of the most important processes and cultural phenomena of the modern age, with a main focus on the consequences and impact of these processes and phenomena in different educational settings. In particular, students will have to develop (in the first three weeks of lessons) the necessary skills for an interdisciplinary and comparative analysis of a significant part of the classical tradition of theoretical sociology - with regard to its contribution to education studies - and (in the fourth and fifth week of lessons) the structural and semantic changes highlighted since the XVII century. The goal is to acquire (in the last two weeks of lessons and beyond), both at a cognitive and professional level, the sociological tools in order to encourage, during the education and training, and despite the growing structural pressure for generalization, the evolutionary potential characterizing every single human life.

Program

1) The relationship individual/society in classical sociological theory; 2) The Hobbesian problem of order and the social contract; 3) The organic relationship individual/community; 4) The capitalist social order and the declining of the guild system; 5) Structures of society and semantics of education; 6) Knowledge vs. information; 7) Education and communication systems theory; 8) The metacode inclusion/exclusion in unfolded modernity; 9) The cultural roots of social distress in contemporary society; 10) Education, identity and socialization; 11) Processes of reflection: Reform, ability to learn (deutero-learning) and evaluation culture; 12) The educational relationship and organizational solutions to the problem of selection; 13) Expressive spaces enliven by creative desiring; 14) The problem of coordination between emotional structure and cognitive processing; 15) Neuroscience and theory of society; 16) Psychoanalysis and socio-cultural processes: body as memory.
