Obiettivi formativi
The course aims at introducing the students to the moral and political values prominent in the Western tradition. A selection of values (such as dignity, respect, liberty, autonomy, equality, fairness, solidarity and patriotism) and issues connected with them will be presented and analyzed in order to teach the students how to recognize when they are at stake, when they conflict with each other and how to critically assess the possible solutions and policies dealing with these values. At the end of the course, the students must be able to evaluate social and political issues in the light of the main moral and political values and to envisage the justification for the choices concerning them.
