Contents
The general part of the course is dedicated to the presentation of the main perspectives of the philosophy of law, to exploration of the anthropological origin of law as well as its essential structure and functions. The in-depth monographic part focuses on the main legal problems of bioethics at the beginning and at the end of human life.

Educational objectives
The lessons will aim at training the learners of a reflective and critical focus on law, which places legal institutions in their historical context and deepens them in their theoretical substratum. The acquisition of essential information about the historical development of theoretical reflection on law will be accompanied by the in-depth study of a specific philosophical method, which from anthropology proceeds to the theoretical foundation of legal institutions (law and right first and foremost). Of general validity, this method will then find specific application on two crucial sides due to their importance and relevance: the trial, first of all, and the biolaw as a response to the challenges of biotechnology.
Prerequisites
General knowledge about Western history and thought.
Teaching methods
Frontal teaching (possible use of slides and videos).
Other information
Further in-depth texts will be indicated in class, with the possibility for those attending to substitute or supplementary readings.
Learning verification modality
Oral exam, possible exemption in itinere for attending students.
Extended program
The course will present the main topics and problems of the subject in a perspective which, as the choice of texts illustrates, does not want to be merely descriptive or historiographic but strictly philosophical, and therefore reflective and critical. This will not prevent thoughtful forays into the thinking of some authors, although the approach is predominantly thematic. The monographic part will explore in the perspective of the illustrated philosophy of law some central biolegal questions
