Learning outcomes

The course of “Phenomenology and Ontology of Care” aims at providing advanced knowledge of theoretical philosophy, with particular attentions to the phenomenological discussion and ontology issues. The theme of care is assumed here as a key-category of contemporary age thanks to which it is possible to analyze and to problematize the understanding of what is existing.
Both modules will offer those conceptual, methodological and cultural elements capable of developing and increasing critical and argumentative skills as well as adequate linguistic competence in the matter. At the end of the course the student will have become familiar with the main advanced notions of theoretical philosophy and will be able to reflect on their mutual relations. In addition, the student is expected to have adequate knowledge of the texts, independent judgment and ability to master philosophical terminology. The course also aims to transmit the ability to critically establish connections between knowledge, even in an interdisciplinary form. These skills will allow the student to communicate, share and disseminate information, ideas, problems and solutions connected with the field of care, both with specialists and with non-specialists. Furthermore, also in view of the preparation of their degree thesis, the student will be encouraged to develop autonomously research paths.
