3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

Philosophy, as a critique of current prejudices and as an interpreter-mediator between expert languages (science, art, normative languages) and ordinary life, has been capital in all the configurations of Humanities that there has been. The other disciplines describe what the world is and, even if they do critical analyses in passing, their task is to explain how things are, not how they should be. The critical dimension, capital for human life, is the specificity of philosophy.

This subject helps the student to improve his or her ability to analyze critically the two most important topics of this Degree, the concepts of history and culture. This critical analysis will be extremely useful to most subjects. Furthermore, the part of the Philosophy Workshop dedicated to learning to think, to debate, to expose orally, and to the various forms of writing ideas, will be of great benefit to the rest of the subjects.
