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.
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.
