OVERVIEW

The course aims to focus on the main authors which influenced the development of Western political thought. In order to do that, historical reconstruction is assessed to be the fittest methodology. From the Classics, passing through the birth of the modern State, to the nineteenth century political ideologies, the course wants to spur the students to work in depth on the meaning or the meanings of political obligation.

AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to allow students to acquire critical skills, in order to make them able to interpret the significance of expressions and terms typical of the political thought, with particular attention to linguistic and institutional and historical contexts. In this way, the knowledge of elements with regard to the historical reconstruction of these contexts is a needed learning objective. More specifically, the learning objectives consist in being able to place a wide range of authors, from Socrate to Cicero, from Dante to Machiavelli, from Bodin to Locke, from Montesquieu to Rousseau and Marx and J.S. Mill, in their institutional and linguistic historical contexts.
