15. Objetivos da unidade curricular/Learning objectives (máx. 200 palavras; expostos em termos
do que se espera que o aluno adquira):
The aim of this course is to introduce the students to the study of philosophy, starting from an
examination into how philosophers have questioned themselves on their own knowledge.
Throughout history the question ‘what is philosophy?’ has been related to the major moments of
crisis of the discipline. To acknowledge this, the student will have the chance to study not only the
most recent continental philosophy debates on the matter (Foucault, Hadot, Deleuze, Derrida,
Agamben), but also to examine those texts that have mostly influenced the approach and the ‘call to
philosophize’. Thus, students will learn how questioning what ‘doing philosophy’ means entails
probing into the history of the practices and the social role of philosophers.
From that standpoint, philosophy might then appear as a form of knowledge of restlessness,
continuously overflowing its pre-set forms as well as continuously making redundant its
epistemologies and institutions.

‘What is philosophy?’
This question has been formulated many times throughout history. Philosophy, as a discipline, has
been conceived either as a ‘notion’ or as a ‘practice’ to reach a new way of life and, even, as a
‘calling’. Therefore, philosophy has not have reached a peaceful, and definite statute, often been

questioned in moments of crisis in Western forms of subjectivity. Nevertheless, ‘philosophy’ might
be considered as an umbrella term gathering different disciplines and theoretical practices having
‘truth’ as its very object of study: that is, not only truth about the world and the subject amazed by
the world, but also the truth as an specific outcome of particular ‘techniques of the Self’.
Furthermore throughout the history of philosophy, we can observe an amazing impulse to ‘create’
institutions, political forms, and subjectivities: since its very beginning, philosophy has also been a
practice of transformation, of the re-creation of these forms.
Nowadays, the discipline is again under ‘evaluation’ and its institutional forms seem to be under a
great crisis. For instance, Jacques Derrida once asked to philosophers to build a university ‘without
conditions’. More recently Pierre Hadot tried to discover again the practice of philosophy as spiritual
exercise. In his last lessons, Foucault investigated the relation between philosophy and ‘care of the
self’. This unit addresses young students approaching philosophy for their first time, as well as more
advanced students desiring to examine in depth the cultural persistence of the amazing passion for
philosophy.
