Medieval & Early Modern Philosophy
M&EMP promotes the study of medieval philosophies without chronological restrictions, preferring to explore the continuities and ruptures with both Classical thought and Modern Philosophy. The disciplinary domains or great themes of this long period in history and philosophy are the subject of research in 2 Research Groups, free from commitments to any school or doctrinal orientation.
Modern & Contemporary Philosophy
Assessing what counts as 'contemporary' (or 'now', or 'modern', or even simply 'current agenda') in contemporary philosophy is one of the central goals of Modern and Contemporary thematic line. Obviously, what counts as philosophy is itself also a question for contemporary philosophy. These are meta-questions that this thematic line will be dealing with, starting from the acknowledgment that the 3 research groups it comprises work with, or within, different conceptions of philosophy.
Philosophy of Education
Philosophy of Education Research Gruop aims to promote the production of knowledge in a way suited to the philosophy of education, which involves the survey and treatment of philosophical and anthropological problems, within what may be considered the critical labor of pedagogical reason. This labor, which defines the philosophy of education, accurately characterizes the diverse initiatives and projects of the 2 reserach groups within the thematic line.
