seminario lisboaManuel Ruiz, biologist and director of New Acropolis Jaen (Spain), traveled to the Portuguese city of Lisbon to teach the seminar ‘Recent discoveries in Anthropology: who appeared first, man or monkey?’. The theme was addressed from a scientific and philosophical perspective.

In the words of Manuel Ruiz: “The complex process of anthropogenesis is far from being completely understood by science, however, the discoveries and advances of the last decade have revolutionized knowledge in the field of Paleoanthropology.”

OINAB-N_DiaFilosofia5Once again this past year New Acropolis Brazil celebrated World Philosophy Day.
This year the theme was ‘Ethics as Art of Living’. The program of activities included an exhibition on the lives of great men and women throughout history which exemplified Ethics. In addition, talks and artistic performances were presented.

Is philosophy a simple set of rules and conventions limited to a time or place, changing to the passage of fashions, or might it be a natural attitude of the human being? By knowing the human being, we can understand the values of fraternity and justice, and develop them consciously.
