Knowledge: students verify their general knowledge achieved during the BA course by reading and commenting a text under teacher's supervision and by using specific bibliographic resources. Competence: by analyzing the text and by comparing it both with preceding as well as with contemporary tradition, the students develop their capacities of understanding and of autonomous evaluation. Furthermore they put text and concepts into correct context within the development of philosophical thought. Applying knowledge they also exercise in elaborating coherently their own ideas and in exposing their achievements in proper scientific language.
The lead lecture is always preceded and followed by a dialogue which permits the introduction and assimilation of the subject that is addressed from time to time.
