Accustomed to believing that everything in nature is divided into living and non-living things, we can easily distinguish the inanimate stone from a live dog. But is it that obvious? Why is life considered one of the greatest mysteries of nature? Nine colorful stands attracted visitors including What is Life?, Minerals, Bees and Ants, The Living Earth, The Living Universe, The Ladder of Life, Symbols, Seven Structural Planes of the Human Being.

“What is life?” is one of the main questions that a human being might ask, as a modest part of the greater whole,
and thus begins the philosophical search for the meaning of one’s own life.

World Philosophy Day_Budapest_Hungary-1New Acropolis Hungary celebrated World Philosophy Day with events across the country with the support of the Hungarian National Commission for UNESCO. A varied program was carried out that included lectures, debates, practices of psychology and artistic activities having the main aim of making people encounter Philosophy in a closer way. In Budapest, several lectures gave way to discussions around Platonic dialogues and to debates on education and justice. “Cave Office”, an adaptation of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave was presented in a modern environment.

In the center of Eger, participants exchanged their different points of view on how practical philosophy can help enhance psychological balance. Several excerpts from films, poems and songs were used as references.

In Győr, in addition to the teachings of Confucius, the book by the philosopher Laura Winckler “Woman, Daughter of the Goddesses” was presented; and an “improvised” philosophical evening  was held with the following slogan: “If you change, everything changes.”

In Pécs, in the cafeteria Székesfehérvár Ribillió, discussions focused around Platonic doctrines on the immortality of the soul and its journey after death; about whether one can learn virtues and lifelong learning, based on the dialogue of Plato entitled Menon.

Also the ideas of Plato on life and death were main themes presented by New Acropolis in the Concordia Cultural Centre in Szeged.

A group of New Acropolis volunteers restored the Convention Hall of Copán Ruinas, where several repairs were made: toilets, sinks, water-supplying pumps, painting of walls, lighting of the outer Hall and internal lighting, painting of doors, among others.

An economic and logistical accomplishment for all volunteers and an invaluable contribution of New Acropolis to the magic of the Copán Ruinas town.
