FUCE Course on European Humanism in the Making
The programme consists of the following five modules, structured in two parts:
PART I – Historical and Cultural Roots: Implications for Europe Today
- European History and Consciousness
- Literature, the Arts, Translation and European Identity
- The Influence of Europe in the History of Science
PART II – Social and Political Construction: Implications for the Future of Europe
- European Social Humanism
- Democracy and Civic Engagement: Beyond Differences
Courses I, II and III form an essential basis for understanding how facts and fiction shape a mental geography with real impact in the world and how this legacy needs to be critically reinterpreted in light of the future.
Courses IV and V focus on the social and political dimensions of Europe inviting a constructive reflection about the European model we want to build.
It helps students to acquire a ‘mentality of social responsibility’ within European humanism, a new kind of citizenship which can help to overcome these challenges and contribute in an active way to an advanced European humanism, becoming agents of change.
A first trial-run for bachelor students is programmed from July 8th until 12th at LUMSA university in Gubbio, Italy.
