Political Theory
Professeur(s) Matteo Gianni[1]


This course will address fundamental moral and political theories that will provide the basic understanding tools to address more recent theories. In particular, the course will focus on teleological theories (in Aristotelian and utilitarian versions) and ethical theories (theory of rights and Kantian universalism). Other approaches, such as the theory of supererogation and the theory of stages of moral development, will also be discussed.
