Since the beginning, FINO Gives much attention to teaching activities, both to activities shared by all students and to activities defined by the four different curricula. Shared teaching activity is mainly devoted to interaction among students and teachers of all the curricula, to enhance possible contamination among different sectors and methods in philosophy. These activities are principally located in the first year of the program. They include:

‚Äst1. ¬†Theory of Argumentation: a general introduction to different aspects of argumentation theory
‚Äď 2: ¬†Rolling Seminar:¬†on a single topic viewed from different philosophical perspectives. Different teachers from different curricula contribute to the seminar. Each seminar consists of an open discussion on texts given¬†in advance by each of the teachers. Students are expected to write a final paper discussing one of the texts discussed during the seminar.
‚Äď 3:¬†Meetings & Lectures: on the problem of evaluation of the quality of research, open science, and open access, basic info on computer science for humanities and other¬†shared interests

 Cycle 34: Mandatory Teaching (1 and 2) will be held in February/March 2019  in Genoa //
