History and Philosophy
The main purpose of this interclass course is to integrate the historical and philosophical perspective in the study of the phenomena of society and culture, according to a tradition of research and education that has characterized this university site since its foundation in the early 1970s. The training course will allow the student to acquire knowledge and ability to analyze the sources, full mastery of the authors and texts, as well as the most relevant problems and methods of investigation of the different interpretative traditions. In this way he will be able to orient himself within the epistemological and contemporary hermeneutic debate both in the historical and in the philosophical sphere.
