Presentazione del corso
The course is divided into two parts.
The first part aims to introduce the students to the main concepts of law and their theoretical foundations, deepening the main concepts.
The second part of the course will focus instead on the relationship between law and morals. It will also examine, even through the reading of some "classic" texts, the various responses that have been given to the question whether and in what way, law and morals are separate.
