Centro Cardinal Bea
Diploma in Studi Giudaici , Licenza in Filosofia pratica, Licenza in Filosofia teoretica
Objectives: This course will study various topics discussed by philosophers
from roughly 200 to 1300 C.E., a period during which the pursuit of
philosophy was intimately connected to the interpretation of the three revealed
monotheistic religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—employing
ideas and arguments inherited from ancient pagan Greek philosophy.
The course will follow one line of development from Plato and Aristotle to
Plotinus into early Christian philosophy, through Islamic and and Jewish
philosophy within the Islamic world, and finally into Scholastic Philosophy.
Topics will include the relation between philosophy and revealed religion
and philosophical examinations of the existence and nature of the deity.
Authors to be read will include Aristotle, Plotinus, Augustine, Anselm, Al-
Farabi, Ibn Sina, Averroes, Saadiah, Maimonides, and time permitting
Aquinas. Secondary readings will be recommended. The method will involve
close reading of primary texts and analysis of arguments. Pdfs. of the
readings will be provided.
Evaluation: The evaluation of students will be based on an oral examination
and a short written paper.
