The course is dedicated to a reflection on philosophy as adventure of the thought.
By the end of the course the students should have developed autonomy of reflection and judgment in order to elaborate reflections on philosophical thought, philosophical language skills, and understanding of the texts, but also to be able to applicate the concept so developed to the problems of the contemporaneity.
