Learning Objectives

Knowledge and understanding: the course allows to acquire an adequate knowledge of the basic conceptual tools for an interdisciplinary approach between philosophy, anthropology and history in an intercultural perspective. The acquisition of these cognitive elements involves the enhancement and development of a specific comparison mode of critic understanding.

Applying knowledge and understanding: the interdisciplinary learning in a intercultural context of understanding and analysis of texts and philosophical-anthropological debates - placed within an adequate framework of historical understanding - is designed to train a concrete ability to linguistic and cultural mediation, indispensable also in terms of the skills necessary for teaching, through the critical control of contents and the appropriation of a specific methodological habitus.

Making judgement: the interdisciplinary learning and its methodological habitus formed in the student a critical capacity of judgement in two main directions, both essential for an effective intercultural mediation, also within the framework of the skills necessary for teaching: the historical-critical awareness of their belonging’s categories and an ability to self-identification of the negotiation’s points by means of which to achieve a satisfactory resolution of the processes of mediation.

Communication skills: the student, trough lectures, seminars and tutorials, learns to use an adequate scientific lexicon of the interdisciplinary anthropological-philosophical and historical debate.

Learning skills: The acquisition of a interdisciplinary methodological habitus as foundation of intercultural mediation, also referred to the specific needs of teaching, establishes and strengthens an autonomous capacity learning, performed by the cognitive sequence: textual and linguistic analysis – historical-critical contextualization – comparative evaluation – negotiation’s points discernment - adequate communicative, didactic or practical solution.
