School of Philosophy

Philosophy plays a distinctive and indispensable role of mediation among cultures and forms of knowledge, and also between reason and faith.  With this role in view, the School of Philosophy stresses both the metaphysical dimension of truth and the comprehension of the present anthropological and socio-cultural context.

The School fosters reflection on the most fundamental human questions and on the issues raised by science.
Encouraged by the encyclical Fides et Ratio, the School gives particular importance to the philosophical approach of St. Thomas Aquinas.

The School’s teaching activity is aimed at fostering a critical capacity, methodological rigor and intellectual responsibility.
