Le théâtre classique du 17e siècle passe pour le sommet de l’art du théâtre en France. Ses trois représentants les plus connus, Corneille et Racine pour la tragédie et Molière pour la comédie comptent parmi les plus grands dramaturges européens de tous les temps, et Molière reste l’un des auteurs les plus joués dans le monde.

Pour vous les faire découvrir, nous vous emmènerons dans l’environnement historique, sociologique, culturel et littéraire qui les a vu naître. Nous retracerons ainsi l’histoire du « théâtre moderne » depuis sa naissance au milieu du 16e siècle jusqu’aux plus brillantes années du «siècle de Louis XIV» (2e moitié du 17e siècle).

Nous examinerons ainsi les fondements de l’expression «théâtre classique», les fondements du système qui a vu naître les « règles classiques », les fondements d’un dialogue théâtral qui repose entièrement sur « l’alexandrin classique ». Et nous ferons apparaître les tensions créatrices (entre la théorie et la pratique, entre les règles et le refus des règles, entre le texte et le spectacle, entre le classicisme et le baroque, entre la tragédie et l’opéra) qui ont façonné le théâtre de cette période.

Enfin, en vous accompagnant dans la lecture des quelques chefs-d’œuvre qui ont créé une rupture esthétique et marqué les esprits, nous vous ferons pénétrer avec nous dans l’atelier créateur des plus grands dramaturges de l’âge d’or du théâtre français.

Pièces de théâtre à lire: Le Cid et Cinna de Corneille / Les Précieuses ridicules, L’École des femmes et Tartuffe de Molière / Andromaque et Phèdre de Racine.

Ces textes sont tous disponibles en éditions de poche (choisir de préférence «Folio classique” et «Folio Théâtre» ou «Le Livre de poche Classique». On peut les lire aussi en ligne sur le site: http://www.theatre-classique.fr/pages/programmes/PageEdition.php

Nous vous invitons à découvrir avec nous d’où viennent ces trois auteurs, comment ils se sont construits, comment ils se sont distingués des plus brillants dramaturges de leur temps. Et nous vous montrerons quels sont les ingrédients qui ont permis à leurs œuvres d’avoir été sans cesse lues et jouées jusqu’à aujourd’hui — et cela, alors même que de nombreux éléments-clés (l’obéissance à des «règles» et l’usage du vers dit «alexandrin», en particulier) ont disparu depuis longtemps.

Acerca de este curso

Dentro de la práctica educativa y clínica, las neurociencias y la psicología cognitiva son ejes fundamentales en la comprensión del comportamiento humano. Estas disciplinas aportan no solo modelos explicativos desde las ciencias básicas sino también desde su perspectiva aplicada. Teniendo en cuenta lo anterior, se pretende generar un espacio para comprender cómo el ser humano desarrolla y adquiere las habilidades de lectura y escritura así como las dificultades más comunes en su adquisición, desde una perspectiva neuropsicológica y cognitiva. Esto, con el fin de ofrecer pautas para identificar cuándo un niño presenta alguna o varias de estas dificultades y qué hacer para ayudarlo en su correcta apropiación.

Should we clone humans? What should we think of the coming genetic revolution? How much control should we have over how and when we die? When does medical treatment turn into medical enhancement — and should we care? Is rationing health care good, bad, necessary — or all of the above?

This course will explore fundamental moral issues that arise in medicine, health, and biotechnology. Some are as old as life itself: the vulnerability of illness, the fact of death. Some are new, brought on by a dizzying pace of technology that can unsettle our core ideas about human nature and our place in the world. And nearly all intersect with issues of racial and gender equality, as well as policies affecting the world’s most vulnerable populations.

Designed to introduce students to the range of issues that define bioethics, together with core concepts and skills, this course should be of interest to undergraduates, health care professionals, policy makers, and anyone interested in philosophy or ethics.

World War 1 was the original catastrophe of the 20th-century. This course investigates the complex ways in which the First World War mobilized philosophical reflection during the war and the varied ways in which philosophical thought responded to the war.

Students in this course will be introduced to different philosophical reactions to the First World War through discussion and analysis of texts, documents, images, artworks, film, and music. The relation between philosophy and poetry will also be explored. In this course, students will gain historical knowledge, conceptual understanding, and literacy for a clearer grasp of the complex ways in which philosophy and the Great War intersected.

The course is divided into four thematic sections:

Across each of these thematic sections, we will explore different philosophical traditions and movements in England, France, and Germany during the war.
