Obiettivi formativi

The course aims at providing students with key legal and philosophical concepts, by introducing them to the main theories and specifically addressing the most recent developments in the philosophical debate on legal questions. From the historical background to the contemporary evolution, the course is intended to present the main tools for analysis of law through the lens of philosophy.

Oggetto:

Risultati dell'apprendimento attesi

By the end of the course, students should prove an in-depth knowledge of the topics addressed during the course. Moreover, students should demostrate that they have developed a critical approach to the most relevant questions inherent in legal culture. Students should therefore show strong argumentation skills, solid both from a philosophical and legal perspective.

        - Why Bioethics and Philosophy of Law? Reasons for an unavoidable reflection;
        - Human Right to Science (CESCR General Comment 25(2020));
        - Origins of Bioethics (from an ecological perspective to medical applied ethics);

- completeness of the answers

- adequate selection of the relevant arguments

- adequate presentation of the arguments (including use of an appropriate legal terminology)

In general, the evaluation will depend on the ability to give an answer construed on a coherent reasoning, consistent with the underlying theoretical background and adequately motivated.
