Syllabus

Course title: Whose Story we talk about Today?

Course content: How to arouse interest in history accused of keeping Europe close to its past? How to deal with the problems of this seemingly anachronistic? What meaning can be given to action in history, when the story escapes every sense? Because Europe is still in agony? But it is still possible to speak of history as they talk about the textbooks?
