Learning outcomes

The teaching of Moral Philosophy is to provide the necessary basics notions that allow to fit and critically understand the today's problems of the science inherent to human behavior. Particular attention will turn to some classics authors of modern morality in order to show the continues line of development with the major moral issues studied today by the ethical neurosciences.
The aim is to promote a theoretical approach to the issue of improving education in human behavior.


The program intends to address the issue of selfishness and motivation in the existence of the human person. Living motivated implies living with conscious control and responsibility of the subjectivity from both the emotional and cognitive to complete the meaning of themselves, beyond the planned and imposed biology education.
The motivation, with the emotion and thought, compose the key trilogy of human been; motivation on one hand controls and refines the raw and heavier energy of the vital dimension of selfishness "just for me" and on the other side it force in search of the true projectual meaning of its "I can be".
The "just for me" and "I can be" are the two poles that dimensions the research of the planning in the human existence. This course wants to stimulate the reflection, the conscious practice.
