Detailed Course Content

The course aims to promote knowledge and deepening of cultural, historical and political scenarios in evolution, moving from the assumption of the forms and lexicons of political reasoning and political processes. The method of study required for the discipline must exclude mnemonic solutions and focus on the ability to grasp through the authors, and the texts proposed to the attention of the students, the historical-social dynamics, the fundamental political links that bind together eras different and which combine to compose a coherent and articulated scenario in relation to the dominant categories in the history of political thought between the modern and contemporary age.
The program includes a first part focused on the authors of modern and contemporary political thought, and a part of individual study on topics chosen by the student.
