OVERVIEW

The course is mainly designed for students following the Master's Degree in Philosophical Methods and it is aimed at in-depth study of the questions of multiculturalism and intercultural communication. The course will introduce the major theoretical questions related to this debate and highlight the inevitable links with other human sciences.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Approaching – through the analysis of historical texts and contemporary documents – major topics of the contemporary international debate such as multiculturalism, cultural identity and otherness, and the possibility for people and groups belonging to different cultures to live together. Students will focus on the "multicultural mind" model and on the concept of communication (both in its basic features and in its intercultural aspects).

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures; class discussion.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Identity, intersubjectivity and recognition.

The aim of the course is to propose the analysis of "classical" problems such as the definition of identity and the development of intersubjectivity starting from  both a personal and socio-cultural perspective, in order to underline finally the strong conceptual relevance of the idea of recognition. Particular attention will be devoted to the phenomenological-hermeneutical paradigm, especially to the proposal by Paul Ricoeur. Some of the major topics of the contemporary intercultural debate will be analyzed more in detail, to allow students to relate themselves critically to the current paradigms of communication and cohabitation (or not) between cultures and specifically to identify their more or less hidden theoretical-philosophical assumptions.
