PhD in Philosophy (last intake in 2013)

Course partially running (all years except the first)


The doctorate aims at allowing students to attain autonomous abilities in scientific and scholarly research, by providing methodological tools and opportunities that enable them to acquire theoretical, historical and philosophical expertise which are indispensable to a scholarly research in the field of philosophy. On the basis of the scientific qualifications of the members of the school (teaching staff), four core curricula have been developed: 1) philosophy of religion and phenomenology; 2) epistemology, ontology, metaphysics; 3) history of modern and contemporary philosophy; 4) moral and political philosophy. Such curricula are to be understood as wide spectrum paths, allowing specific in depth research ? either author or theme-related ? chosen by doctoral students in accordance with the teaching staff.
