Obiettivi formativi
This is a course in History of Ancient Philosophy (M-FIL/07). A first objective of the course is to develop a systematic and in-depth knowledge of ancient philosophy from the beginnings to late antiquity through a critical engagement with both primary texts and the relevant secondary literature. A second objective is the promotion of a historically accurate, and theoretically sophisticated, understanding of the primary texts (if possible, in their original Greek or Latin language). A third and final objective of the course consists in the study of the subsequent reception of the primary texts and the formation of the various philosophical traditions. Each tradition can be usefully regarded as a distinct style of philosophy dealing with specific philosophical problems.
