Since its foundation FINO has placed considerable emphasis on teaching activities appropriate to doctoral studies. These comprise activities shared by all students in the doctoral program, and  activities organized separately by the four different curricula. The objective of the shared teaching activity is to promote interaction among students and teachers of all the curricula, enhancing possible contamination among different sectors and methods in philosophy. These activities are principally located in the first year of the program. They include:

‚Äst1. ¬†Theory of Argumentation: a general introduction to different aspects of argumentation theory.
‚Äď 2: ¬†Rolling Seminar:¬†a seminar course on a single topic viewed from different philosophical perspectives. Different teachers from different curricula contribute to the seminar. Each meeting consists in an open discussion on texts provided¬†in advance by the relevant teacher. Students are expected to write a final paper on one of the specific themes discussed during the seminar.
‚Äď 3:¬†Meetings & Lectures: on the problem of evaluation of the quality of research, open science and open access, basic information on computer science for the humanities, and other¬†shared interests.

 Cycle 34: Mandatory Teaching (1 and 2) will be held in February/March 2019  in Genoa //
