PROGRAMME OF EXAMINATION
5, 6, or 9 credits: At the level of the undergraduate program, with this course you can gain 5, 6 or 9 credits of Moral Philosophy (M-FIL/03), code 105454, according to the parameters of your study plan. Who needs 6 credits follows the 18 lessons of the third bimester, and who needs 5 credits also follows the lessons of the third bimester but with a somewhat reduced programme (specified below). Who needs 9 credits follows the lessons of the third (18 lessons) and of the bimester (9 other lessons).
The final exam is oral. To take the exam of 6 (or 5) credits students must expound texts equivalent to 8 (respectively 7) articles chosen from those discussed in the general part of the seminar (bibliography, part 1). The texts or (if specified) passages of text that are listed on a single author are always equivalent to one article. To take the exam of 9 credits, in addition to the programme for the examination for 6 credits, you must expound the excerpts of Hume's "Treatise" (bibliography, part 2). The examination will focus on the reconstruction of the theses and of the systematic arguments of the authors discussed.
Those who wish to write a term paper (very old study regulations) must elaborate a critical analysis of one of the texts discussed; they can submit the paper via email to the teacher: email@example.com. The instructions for the preparation of the thesis are presented online on the teacher's web page: http://www.lumer.info/?page_id=12, at the bottom of this sub-page you click on "Come si scrive una tesina?" ("How to write a term paper?").
