Educational objectives
A deep reflection of the question around the philosophical nature of religious experience. In particular, to critically read, in the Kantian proposal of moral religion, one of the culminating themes of modernity in comparison with the theme of the religious and the sacred.

The aim is to trace the most relevant contents of the reflection on religion in a time that is said to be secularised but which does not evade the question of religion and faith.

In addition, students will be helped to design and develop activities for teaching philosophy.

Among the objectives required of students who

- have demonstrated knowledge and comprehension skills that extend and/or reinforce those typically associated with the first cycle and enable them to develop and/or apply original ideas, often in a research context;
- are able to apply their knowledge, understanding and problem-solving skills to new or unfamiliar topics, set in broader (or interdisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study;
- have the ability to integrate knowledge and deal with complexity, and to make judgements on the basis of limited or incomplete information, including reflection on the social and ethical responsibilities associated with the application of their knowledge and judgements;
- are able to communicate clearly and unambiguously their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale behind them, to specialist and non-specialist interlocutors;
- have developed those learning skills that enable them to continue their studies in a self-directed or autonomous manner.
Students must have a solid basis of historical philosophical preparation and development of theory. Sufficiently acquired in the master degree in philosophy

Learning verification modality
reports during the seminars and final discussion
The final evaluation will take into account all the discussion work and reports carried out during the course. this examination will assess the student's ability and skill to understand texts (30% of the grade); to analyse problems (20% of the grade); to formulate an overall judgement (20% of the grade) and to express content (20% of the grade); ability to self-assess (10% of the grade)

In the instance where the student intends to take the examination in a year earlier than the one scheduled in the study plan, it is recommended to attend the cycle of lectures and to take the examination in the first useful call after the lectures have ended, thus respecting the semester in which the course is scheduled.
