Palestras_Santos01New Acropolis carried out in the city of Santos a cycle of activities free and open to the public on various topics and focusing on philosophy in the classical manner. Five meetings were inspired by the works of Seneca, Kant, Aristotle, the Bhagavad Gita and Confucius, with a very practical format of “mini” classes, followed by talks on: how to get more time, what is freedom, what brings happiness, how to make good decisions, and the relationship between ethics and politics.

These “open” classes intend to show the practicality of being a philosopher nowadays.
