Syllabus

MM: Lezioni prof. Peruzzi
------------------------
Prerequisites: knowledge of the history of ancient and medieval philosophy.
Content of the course: René Descartes’s “Discourse on the Method”.
The course includes the exposition of the themes contained in the Cartesian text published in 1637 that has become the manifesto of a new inquiry on nature related to an innatistic gnoseology and to a metaphysics that reaches the rational demonstration of God’s existence. Along with these fundamental themes of the text, Descartes’s cultural formation will be examined, as outlined in the first part of the “Discourse”, along with the exposition of the ethical principles contained in the third part. The course also includes the presence of a classroom tutor who will present the main authors and themes of the History of Philosophy from the 15th to the 18th centuries (from Niccolò Cusano to Immanuel Kant) following a different schedule than that of the professor.
