Project: OP VVV MŠMT CZ.02.2.69/0.0/0.0/18_070/0010479
The project, financed by the OP MŠMT in the field of the Maria Skłodowska-Curie IF Actions and lead by Dr. Emanuele Lacca, aims to analyse the work of the Spanish Dominican Pedro de Ledesma (1544-1616) who seems to have understood the value of human dignity in an innovative and convincing way. Within this framework, the project will answer four main questions: how is it possible to define correctly ‘what is man’ from the metaphysical and anthropological points of view? What are the attributes that define this man as a human being? Which arguments are used to define a man as human being and as ‘social actor’? Why are metaphysical questions so important to solve anthropological questions on human dignity? The planned research tackles a major philosophical issue, with the potential to generate collaborations across different periods of the history of ideas and across different traditions of thought.
