Learning outcomes

The teaching programme aims to impart the fundamentals of the theory and language of philosohy in such a way that students will be able to independently recognize and understand the internal relationship between philosophical concepts and issues. To encourage this, the teaching programme will cover a number of central issues to the European and extra-European philosophical traditions. The aim is not simply to judge students' ability to learn information, but also to encourage them to make independent judgements and hone their reasoning skills, with the help of a seires of exercises proposed during te course.

Este curso de ensenanza se compromete a favorecer las bases teòricas y linguisticas para que los estudiantes sean capaces autònomamente de reconocer y elaborar la relaciòn intima entre conceptos y cuestiones filsofòficas. Para praticar esto en el proceso de instrucciòn se enfocaràn algunas cuestiones de importancia fundamental de la tradiciòn filosòfica europea y extra europea. El objetivo no es solamente prestar atenciòn a la capacidad de aprendizaje de los estudiantes, sino también de fomentar una autonomia de judicio y de afinar la capacidad argumentativa que puede ser guiada a través de diferentes pràcticas en el recorrido didàctico.
