Objectives
1) GENERAL OBJECTIVE
THE COURSE AIMS TO PRESENT THE FUNDAMENTAL THEMES OF GENERAL ONTOLOGY (CONCEPT OF BEING) AND SPECIAL METAPHYSICS (SOUL, WORLD, GOD, AND RELATED CONCEPTS). THROUGH THESE THEMES THE STUDENT LEARNS TO KNOW ON THE ONE HAND THE FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEMS OF PHILOSOPHICAL THOUGHT, ON THE OTHER TO SEE THE CONNECTIONS WITH OTHER PHILOSOPHICAL AND SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINES.
2) KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
THE STUDENT WILL BE ABLE TO ORIENT THEMSELVES IN THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PHILOSOPHICAL KNOWLEDGE, IN ITS DISTINCTION BETWEEN GENERAL DISCIPLINES, PERTAINING TO THE FOUNDATIONS OF ANY CONCEPTION OF REALITY, AND SPECIAL DISCIPLINES, PERTAINING TO THE PECULIARITIES OF THE VARIOUS FIELDS OF EXPERIENCE. IN THIS WAY HE WILL LEARN TO IDENTIFY WHAT CHARACTERIZES A DISCOURSE ON THE FOUNDATIONS BOTH WITHIN THE PHILOSOPHICAL DISCIPLINES AND IN OTHER FORMS OF KNOWLEDGE.

3) ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
THE STUDENT WILL LEARN TO IDENTIFY WHAT THE FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS OF EACH FORM OF KNOWLEDGE ARE AND HOW THEY OPERATE. HE WILL LEARN TO EXAMINE THE LOGICAL STRUCTURES AS WELL AS THE PRACTICAL EFFECTS OF KNOWLEDGE (CULTURAL AND SYMBOLIC FORMS, ETHICAL-POLITICAL FORMS). ON THIS BASIS HE WILL BE ABLE TO ELABORATE IN SELF-REFLECTIVE AND CRITICAL TERMS THE WAY IN WHICH A GLOBAL REPRESENTATION OF REALITY IS CONSTRUCTED.

4) AUTONOMY OF JUDGMENT
THE STUDENT IS REQUIRED TO INDEPENDENTLY EVALUATE HOW A GENERAL REPRESENTATION OF REALITY IS FORMED, LEARNING TO DISCERN THE CAPACITIES AND LIMITS OF THE DIFFERENT PHILOSOPHICAL MODELS OFFERED BY EUROPEAN THOUGHT. IN THIS WAY IT WILL DEVELOP A GREATER CRITICAL AWARENESS OF THE CULTURAL CONTEXT IN WHICH IT OPERATES.

5) COMMUNICATION SKILLS
THE STUDENT IS REQUIRED TO HAVE A SUFFICIENT KNOWLEDGE OF THE BASIC PHILOSOPHICAL LEXICON, CONSOLIDATED BY CLASSICAL AND MODERN LINGUISTIC KNOWLEDGE. THIS WILL FORM THE BASIS FOR TRANSFORMING KNOWLEDGE INTO ACTIVE SKILLS TO BE COMMUNICATED AND APPLIED IN DIFFERENT CONTEXTS, ALSO THANKS TO THE USE OF DIGITAL TOOLS AND MEDIA PLATFORMS.
6) LEARNING ABILITY
THE STUDENT MUST BE ABLE TO USE TRADITIONAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL BIBLIOGRAPHIC TOOLS TO CARRY OUT RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS, KNOWING HOW TO APPROPRIATELY IDENTIFY AND INTERPRET THE TEXTS AND CULTURAL HERITAGE AVAILABLE. ON THIS BASIS HE WILL BE ABLE TO REALIZE THE "LIFELONG LEARNING" ENVISAGED BY ADVANCED SOCIETIES

NATURE AND FORMS OF DIALECTICS. PART ONE: DIALECTICS AS THE ART OF DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION.

THE TERM “DIALECTIC” HAS AT LEAST TWO FUNDAMENTAL PHILOSOPHICALLY MEANINGS. FOR A VERSE IT INDICATES THE ART OF DIALOGUE AND ARGUMENTATION, WHICH REFLECTS THE DEEPEST NATURE OF THOUGHT AND OF REALITY ITSELF. FOR ANOTHER, IT INDICATES A TECHNIQUE OF PERSUASION THAT REMAINS WITHIN THE SPHERE OF OPINIONS AND PROBABLE MERIT.
THIS MODULE DEALS WITH THE ANCIENT DIALECTICS IN PLATO AND ARISTOTLE AND ITS MAIN LINES OF DEVELOPMENT, WITH A FOCUS ON THE CONTEMPORARY REBIRTH OF THE THEORY OF ARGUMENTATION.
