The four curricula are actually connected with research programs developed by scholars in the Board of Teachers. We give herby only general indication of the main topics that live open the possibility of new lines of research, coherent with the field of expertise of people working in FINO.

(1) Mind, Science and Language: 

Topics in the philosophy of Language and Mind, Philosophy of Logic and Philosophy of Physics, Epistemology and Philosophy of Sciences,  Causality, Perception and Cognition, Cognitive Sciences, Analytic ontology and metaphysics, Contextualism and Relativism,  the philosophy of Frege and Wittgenstein.

The curriculum, fostering mainly but not exclusively the analytic tradition in philosophy, is ideally connected with the  Italian and European Society for Analytic Philosophy, and the Research Centers  Logic Language and Cognition in Torino, Eidos in Genéve, and  Gecos in Genova,  Logos in  Barcelona and  Jean Nicod in Paris. In the curriculum we give much weight to mastering logics as  tool for linguistic and metaphysical analysis.

(2) Ethics and Political Philosophy:

Metaethics, Substantive and Applied Ethics, Bioethics, Philosophical Anthropology, Political philosophy, Theories of justice, Democratic Theory and History of Political Thought.

The curriculum is linked to the Italian and the European Society of Analytic Philosophy, to the Aretai Centre of research in Genova and to the tradition of Graduate conferences on Political Philosophy in  Pavia. It has apparent relations with research centres connected with Law studies, problems of choice and Game theory, and on emotive aspects in political and economical choice.

(3) History of Philosophy and Science:

History of Medieval, modern and contemporary Philosophy, Philosophy of the Enlightenment, German Philosophy, Relations between history of Philosophy and history of Scientific Thought; History of Medicine

The curriculum is traditionally linked to the Annual Graduate Conference in the History of Philosophy organised and supported by  Collegio Ghislieri in Pavia, and to research Centers such as Istituto Nazionale di Studi sul Rinascimento di Firenze and the  European Society for Early Modern Philosophy.

(4) Theoretical Philosophy: 

Aesthetics, Hermeneutics, Social Ontology, Collective Intentionality, Phenomenology, Philosophy of Arts and the New Media, Theories of perception, imagination and emotion.

The  curriculum is linked to different Research Centres such as  Labont (Social Ontology) in  Torino or the Research Centre on  Religions Sciences at the University of Genoa  and is promoting different research projects non exclusively linked to Continental Philosophy, with particular concern for the philosophies of  Nietzsche, Heidegger, Husserl, Derrida, Bloch, Merleau Ponty.
