The Faculty of Philosophy has pursued, in the recent years, the renewal of the Institutional Cycle, of the Specialization and of the Doctorate, following the innovative lines traced by the Second Vatican Council, by the Apostolic Constitution Sapientia Christiana, by the encyclical letter, Fides et ratio of John Paul II and, finally, from the document produced by the Congregation for Catholic Education (CEC), Decree of Reform of Ecclesiastical Studies in Philosophy of January 28, 2011, with application documents, subsequently merged into the Apostolic Constitution Veritatis Gaudium (January 29, 2018).
The renewal kept in mind a dual purpose that the Faculty has gradually assumed over the years. This is about a “dual purpose” and not of “two purposes”, because they are two components of the same mission of our Faculty.

Founded in 1958, the magazine is the official organ of the Faculty of Philosophy and its scientific objective is to deepen and re-present, with languages and methodologies appropriate to our time, the essential contents of what is called philosophia perennis, which has Thomas of Aquinas as one of its greatest exponents. The researches hosted there address the great metaphysical, ethical, anthropological, epistemological and history themes of philosophy, through a fruitful comparison with contemporary thought.
