Syllabus
Prerequisites:
Target skills and knowledge:: The course aims at a critically and methodologically accurate sketch of some of the significant moments in the history of philosophical thought, with reference to theories concerning the self, consciousness and personal identity, to be completed by a reading of texts by Descartes, Locke and Popper.
Course unit contents: 1. A general knowledge of the philosophical ideas in Descartes, Locke, Hume and Popper.
2. A few modern and contemporary theories concerning the self, consciousness and personal identity.
Planned learning activities: Firstly, Descartes' dualism will be founded in its own historical and conceptual context, by analyzing the "Discorso sul metodo", and then critically inserted in philosophical and psychological controversies of today about Descartes.
Secondly, Locke's chapter on personal identity in the "Essay concerning Human Understanding" will be thought of and contextually talked over in the light of present-day psychological theories of personality.
Thirdly, Popper's solution to the body-mind problem by means of the so-called "three worlds theory" will be confronted with both Descartes' dualism and many scientific points of view which contrast it today.

Teaching methods: By analyzing the works and discussing some of the fundamental theoretical points in them, the course aims at enabling every student to understand the thought of the authors dealt with autonomously.Meanwhile, other lectures will place each of selected philosophers in his own historical context.
Assessment criteria: The exam is a written text. It will take place at the end of the course and will be based on four open questions.
At least two of them will ask for explaining passages from Descartes, Locke or Popper's works, from which their own solutions to the body-mind or the self existence problems may be deduced. They will aim at verifying student's direct and deeper knowlwedge of those philosophers' theories.
The third question will be concerned with the actuality of Descartes,Locke or Popper's ideas above all in psychological or scientific contemporary discussions, while the last question will be about a general theme concerning remaining thinkers (especially Hume).
