Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The Rights of the Man and the Citizen, as “declared” for the first time in France, 1789, did not fall from the sky. As much as they (should) inform our values and legal practices to this day, they also are a product of the European and extra-European pre-modern age, of secular and ecclesiastical law, of philosophy and theology: you would not have guessed how fascinating Spanish Scholasticism can be. – The Guided Reading course is conceived according to the respective guidelines (http://www.univie.ac.at/geschichte/lehrerhebung/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/GR-Info.pdf). It is designed for those who would like to attend to contemporary sources (from Thomas Aquinas to the Encyclopédie) and their respective contextualization in a well-supervised environment, and in a low-threshold mode. – Please expect to prepare (in a written way) one or more texts every week (to be uploaded on moodle; on the overall requisites: please see the above guidelines). This will be the basis for collective discussion and group work during the course.

Assessment and permitted materials

Each participant will be summing up / preparing in a written way at least one piece of text each week. This (80%) together with active participation in the course discussions will sum up to the final mark.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

To be announced at the beginning of the Course.
