The second phase of applications goes from the 1st to the 12th September (see below).
The cycle of studies conducive to the Master’s degree in Philosophy seeks to deepen the scientific and methodological competences in order to acquire the specialized capacities in the research and/or professional domains.
In Ethics and Practical Philosophy, themes and authors will be studied concerning the relations between ethic rationality and political rationality, as well Political Anthropology, and articulating the contributions of Ethical and Philosophical Anthropology with the issues of interculturality and citizenship.
In Philosophy Teaching and Human Rights, the main goal is to deepen research work on critical confluences between philosophical reason and pedagogical reason. Therefore, we will mostly privilege the contribution of Ethical and Philosophical Anthropology, with a particular focus on the studies of human right foundations.
In Medieval Philosophy, we suggest the study of authors and themes from all philosophical domains, starting with the direct reading of textual sources and theory traditions. Education is oriented for scientific research and teaching. The classes are articulated with the participation in seminars and conferences by invited national and foreign teachers.
In Contemporary and Modern Philosophy, we focus on themes and authors from this historical period, seeking to find correlations between philosophy, religion, sciences and arts in general. We give special relevance to current problems in technique, language, phenomenology, will, mind, biology and the construction or alienation of subjectivity.
