Second Degree Course in Philosophy and Ethics of Relationships [LM-78]

Objectives

The second degree Course in Philosophy and Ethics of Relationships offers a sound basis for approaching the main moral and political questions of our contemporary times, and focuses particularly on the interelation of economy, environment, interculturalism. Beside a curriculum (“Philosophy and education”) providing the credits for enrolling in the teaching activity in high schools, it offers (in this unique on the italian University scene) a specific curriculum(“Philosophy and civil economy”) open to graduates who aim to gain knowledge and competences employable in all contexts in which the complexity of connection among public engagement, civil economy, no-profit organizations and social enterprises emerges, and requires a deepened philosophical, moral and pedagogical undertanding of values and definition of our relational structure as human beings. Civil economy and ethics of relationships among community members – a major point of debate in our complex societies- shall soon acquire, in the very near future of the University plan offer, another declination, as soon a it shall be inaugurated a new curriculum of the second Degreee Course, stressing on comparison and interaction between the heritage of philosophy derived from Chinese thought and its possible relations to a renewed hermeneutical look aiming to the evaluation and study of multifarious textures interwoven in our intercultural and globalized world.
