School of Philosophy

Filosofia

Understanding in context, in the heart of Rome

The School of Philosophy promotes contextual mediation between the fields of learning, between different cultures, and between reason and faith. With openness to theology, the School favors the understanding of the metaphysical dimension of truth and of the anthropological and historical, cultural context.

Brochure

We offer the foundations for understanding the crucial issues, whether current or perennial, to address the questions posed by scientific discovery and cultural change. The philosophical thought of Saint Thomas Aquinas, read in the light of the encyclical Fides et Ratio, roots our common tradition.

Our teaching style develops capability for critical thought, methodological accuracy, and intellectual responsibility:

  • Systematic and organic formation in the fundamental areas of Philosophy;
  • Direct contact with authors and their great philosophical works;
  • Deepening appreciation for the metaphysical and anthropological dimensions of the classical tradition.

In a context:

  • Of study and collaboration between professors and students: with an individualized tutorial approach and a dedicated teacher to guide each student;
  • With a library among the most complete for the study of Philosophy;
  • Universal, characterized by closeness to the See of Peter;
  • Open to the needs of local Churches, with a diverse community of students coming from the whole world.

On Thursday, May 10, 2018, starting at 4 pm in the Aula Magna "Giovanni Paolo II", was held the third edition of the Feast of the University, in the memory of Blessed Álvaro del Portillo, our first Grand Chancellor.

Festa dell'Università nella memoria del Beato Álvaro del Portillo

On Saturday, May 12, at 7 pm in the Basilica of Sant'Eugenio in Rome (VIale delle Belle Arti, 10), the Prelate of Opus Dei will celebrate the Holy Mass in the liturgical memory of Blessed Álvaro del Portillo.

57% of the university students completed the quality questionnaire (“Evaluation of Courses”) concerning the subjects of the first semester of the academic year 2017-18. In total, 165 courses were evaluated: 91 of Theology, 29 of Philosophy, 26 of Communication, 14 of Canon Law and 5 of the Department of Languages. Courses that did not reach a minimum percentage of responses were not taken into consideration. The number of the filled questionnaires reaches almost 2,400.

In communicating the information, Prof. Rafael Martínez, Academic Vice-Rector, thanked the students for this concrete collaboration, which represent “an important help to contribute to the improvement our teaching activity”.

The questionnaire which is compiled “online” in an anonymous form, consists of ten questions in its current version to which an evaluation ranging from 1 to 5 is reserved.
