World Philosophy Day celebrations

Hundreds of philosophers worldwide are participating in World Philosophy Day and International Day for Tolerance celebrations on 16 November.

World Philosophy Day was introduced in 2002 by UNESCO to honour philosophical reflection in the entire world by opening up free and accessible spaces. Its objective is to encourage the peoples of the world to share their philosophical heritage and to open their minds to new ideas, as well as to inspire a public debate between intellectuals and civil society on the challenges confronting our society.
