Ethics, Values and Planning: AESOP Thematic Group
This AESOP (Association of European School Of Planning) thematic group aims to facilitate lively debates on crucial ethical urban planning issues. It organizes colloquiums and conferences, while providing an open space for members. The thematic group addresses mainly four themes: the relationships between ethics and spatial configurations (e.g. distributive issues, access to resources, freedom), the role and meaning of “spatial justice”, how to appropriately include values in urban governance, design and planning, different types of ethical approaches in planning and their concrete operationalization.
Legal Acts, Images, Institutions (LAII)
Legal Acts, Images, Institutions (LAII) focuses on the legal and philosophical analysis of the form of legal and contractual documents in light of the challenges that stem both from the new social, international and technological landscape we see today and from the new theoretical perspectives concerning legal design and social ontology. The acquisition of awareness of the performative and institutional character of legal acts and the role played by norms (and, in particular, by constitutive rules) in their creation and regulation has radically transformed the paradigms of knowledge of legal acts, pushing us to rethink and redesign existing boundaries.
Funded by Fondazione Sardegna in 2019.

Persona - Research Centre in Phenomenology and Sciences of the Person
The research centre PERSONA aims at practicing phenomenology as a philosophical style developed to challenge scepticism about both cognitive and ethical reliability of (ordinary) consciousness or experience, conceiving the latter as an indispensable foundation to a human person’s exercise of reason, both cognitive and practical. Based on these aims, PERSONA primarily promotes philosophical investigation on four research topics: Consciousness (sensory perception and embodiment, feeling and emotion, and related pathologies), Personhood (the moral, sensible and rational agent), Normativity and Values (a phenomenological version of axiological cognitivism), and Social Ontology (qualitative social ontology, collective intentionality, empathy and intersubjective intentionality).
