Abstract In our University, the system of Faculties, the subordination of courses, the partition into disciplinar sectors are problems conditioned by some "hidden philosophies", which often go back to the nineteenth century positivism. Following Vailati's Enriques' and Piaget's criticism of Comte's system of sciences, we analyse these problems, suggesting some ideas in order to give better and epistemologically founded solutions.
