As a final test, students had to expose in public “what is philosophy today”, with a spontaneous reflection of their arguments and no written support. They also needed to control body expression and most remarkably, convey their ideas to the audience.
They effectively managed, sometimes with drastic examples or humorous comments, to show that philosophy is a good way to live life and serving “to rebuild the bridges destroyed by anger, hatred, and envy”.
At the end of the ceremony, they received from the Director of New Acropolis Germany, Gudrun Gutdeutsch, the document which certifies that, after months of intense work, they successfully completed their Rhetoric Course.
