  • Overview

    El curso se propone introducir a los estudiantes en la especificidad de la reflexión filosófica sobre la política: el problema de la "naturaleza" política del hombre, la naturaleza de la acción política en cuanto tal y sus diversas dimensiones institucionales. El curso podrá desarrollarse siguiendo temas centrales como la relación ética-política, la temática del derecho natural, el surgimiento de la noción de sociedad civil o la relación entre individuo, sociedad y estado entre otros; o centrándose en la lectura de una obra filosófica fundamental para el desarrollo de la filosofía política occidental.
