The course aims to initiate students in philosophical reflection through the study of the main theories of natural law and the controversy that this has given rise to from Antiquity to the present day.
The course also aims to provide an understanding of a range of major contemporary social and political problems.

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

The students will be initiated into philosophical culture, but also by showing them the current philosophical standpoint of the different doctrines, they will be encouraged to ask questions about the nature of law and politics.
