Learning Objectives

The course of History of Contemporary Philosophy, for students of Educational Sciences, in this academic year aims to address in Part one the theme relating to the fate of the present between history, time and life, with particular reference to historical thought. philosophical and dialectical between Hegel, Simmel, Habermas and contemporaries. The intention is to analyze, reconstruct and interpret, in our present, "between classic and contemporary", the relationship between philosophy and history, between the history of philosophy and the philosophy of history, between the time of history and the thought of history, between Chronos, Kairos and Krisis under the urgency of contemporaneity that continues to pervade and disturb the forms of human life. In the Second part, the course will analytically examine the original narrative, critical and interpretative tangle documented on the historical-philosophical, sociological and aesthetic level aimed, in the present scene, to make known the constellations of analysis with which Georg Simmel, Siegfried Kracauer, Walter Benjamin and Roland Barthes read in the twentieth century the genesis of modern individuality, the morphology of the human experience of the urban space of the metropolis and the birth and developments of contemporary photography. In Part Three, the subject of thematic and critical discussion will be the relationship between Bildung, Europe and the West, with particular reference to the intertwining between culture, history of philosophy, politics, religion and critical theory of society in the thought of Hegel, Simmel, Adorno, Gadamer and Habermas.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

In relation to the discipline, the student must show:

Knowledge and understanding:

- knowledge of the fundamental themes of the history of contemporary philosophy exposed in class and in-depth in textbooks and understanding of its fundamental concepts in their cultural, philosophical, historical, political, aesthetic and pedagogical implications (see Educational Objectives);

- knowledge of philosophical forms and cultural, historical, socio-political, aesthetic and pedagogical metamorphoses and dynamics exposed in class and in-depth in textbooks and understanding of the processes that have shaped them.

- understanding of the constituent elements of the relationship between philosophy, time, history, life and dialectics, between culture, politics and history and between styles and forms of the aesthetic experience between modern and contemporary in relation to the subject area covered and the program carried out.

Applied knowledge and understanding:

- ability to orient oneself in the contemporary cultural, philosophical, political, sociological, aesthetic and pedagogical debate and to understand the elements that today structurally consolidate the knowledge of the fundamental problems of the history of contemporary philosophy also in the educational, philosophical and historical fields.

Making judgments:

- ability to autonomously take a stand with respect to the main cultural, philosophical, historical-political, sociological, aesthetic and pedagogical issues of the critical debate on contemporary thought.

Communication skills:

- ability to adequately communicate what has been learned in the forms of university-level study; ability to transmit and communicate the fundamental aspects and principles of the history of contemporary philosophy expressed in its inescapable disciplinary relationship for the education of the student of education.

Ability to learn:

- on the basis of the knowledge acquired through the course, the student must be able to autonomously build in-depth courses and understand which readings and experiences can help him in this regard.

In relation to the discipline, therefore, the student must show possession:

• mastery of basic knowledge;

• understanding of the fundamental concepts of the discipline;

• the ability to use knowledge and concepts to reason according to the logic of the discipline.
