To celebrate World Philosophy Day, New Acropolis in Mumbai hosted a talk titled ‘Philosophy for Living’ presented by National Director Yaron Barzilay, at the Indian Express Gallery.

With the participation of a large audience, the talk emphasized the vital role of philosophy to improve the human condition and the importance of understanding the real practice of philosophy as a way of life rather than a pure intellectual study with no practical application.

The event also included a book launch and reading of select excerpts from the English edition of the book ‘Philosophy for Living’, by Delia Steinberg Guzman, President of the International Organization New Acropolis.
