World Philosophy Day 2007, 15 November 2007

Aiming to promote and popularize philosophical reflection, World Philosophy Day in 2007 continues to work towards the fostering of independent thought and dialogue.

Turkey is this year the host of the Day’s international event, which will take place in Istanbul, on 22 and 23 November 2007. This country is of particular importance to UNESCO’s Philosophy Programme, being at the origin of the adoption in 2005 of the Intersectoral Strategy on Philosophy by UNESCO’s Member States.
