World Philosophy Day

World Philosophy Day

In 2002, UNESCO established the third Thursday of November as World Philosophy Day:

Philosophy is an inspiring discipline as well as an everyday practice that can transform societies. By enabling us to discover the diversity of the intellectual currents in the world, philosophy stimulates intercultural dialogue. By awakening minds to the exercise of thinking and the reasoned confrontation of opinions, philosophy helps to build a more tolerant, more respectful society. It thus helps to understand and respond to major contemporary challenges by creating the intellectual conditions for change.

This is worth celebrating. So for the second year in a row, thanks to the tireless and creative efforts of Professor Maria Balcells, we had ourselves a celebration, including games and prizes!
