Orfino da Lodi, De regimine et sapientia potestatis; Brunetto Latini, The "Politica"
Period of duration of course
Taking its cue from the literature on the professional exercise of power, composed between the 1220s and the 1260s, the course focuses on the continuous reshaping of an ethic that is not only a professional, but also - to varying degrees depending on the texts and their contexts of production – a cetual and an individual one, a changing ethic that well reflects the incessant experimentation that accompanies the establishment of the populus. There are planned external professors’ lessons.
To improve a critical approach to the sources, investigating the cultural as well as the socio-political contexts of their production.
Bibliographic references will be given during the course.
