edX: Comprendere la filosofia

 with  Maurizio Ferraris

Che cosa è la filosofia? Questo corso offre un racconto del pensiero filosofico attraverso quattro epoche da quella antica cosidetta della contemplazione a quella più recente.

Attraverso 12 tappe storico-teoriche sarai accompagnato in un viaggio nel sapere filosofico con la consapevolezza che, come ha scritto Pierre Bayle, non c’è setta filosofica, per quanto sconfitta e superata, che non sia pronta a ripresentarsi. E non c’è posizione teoretica, neppure il parmenidismo, che non possa ritrovare attualità addirittura mediatica. Il superamento storico non vuol dire “oblio”, né comporta mai un definitivo superamento teorico. Al massimo insegna che sbagliando si impara, o che altri imparano, e che nulla – nemmeno le dottrine che negano il divenire – ritorna mai come prima.

Understanding Philosophy

What is philosophy? This course explores the development of philosophical thought in four major stages, from antiquity to the present day. Your journey takes you to 12 stops, and each will serve to enhance your knowledge of philosophy, remembering, as Pierre Bayle said, that no philosophical sect is ever really defeated or surpassed and they are always poised to make a comeback.

Similarly, philosophical theories never lose their relevance, even Parmenides may find space in today’s media. New theoretical developments do not consign older theories to “the scrapheap of time”. Quite simply, the newer theories show us that we can learn from our mistakes, or our mistakes can inform others and that nothing - even doctrines that deny the idea of constant flux – ever returns completely unchanged.
