The Specialist Course in Anthropology is expected to provide students with the qualifications required to develop a synthesis of the fundamental principles of classical anthropological thinking, in a genuine Thomist spirit, and of the most representative modern and contemporary developments. The latter require careful discernment in order to get positive clues from them, and identify their least acceptable dynamics. By highlighting the problems arising from the contemporary philosophical and cultural scenario, the course will enable students to develop a strong and coherent view of humankind, centred on the individual, open to the absolute, but also involving a number of key dimensions, such as historical significance, religiousness, culture, existence, and intersubjectivity.
