Philosophy, Science and Hermetism’, by José Carlos Fernández, writer and director of New Acropolis Portugal, who explored complementary ideas regarding the Sun, source of life, from diverse yet interconnected disciplines.Link audio: https://m.soundcloud.com/novaacropole/sol
New Acropolis Coimbra, within the interview series ’20 Minutes with Philosophy’ carried out a live interview with Françoise Terseur, deputy director of New Acropolis Coimbra, entitled ‘How do we become better?’.

Finally, New Acropolis Oeiras-Cascais, within the cycle ‘Open Classrooms. Great Inspirations for Humanity’, held the class entitled: ‘Alexander the Great: From Reality to Myth, by Antony Capitao, volunteer of New Acropolis Oeiras-Cascais. He discussed the dignity of this great character, dignity that he carried and granted to all human beings, including his enemies. Dignity, kindness and mental clarity, together, had an impact in his time, and can do so in our current times as well. Link audio: https://m.soundcloud.com/novaacropole/alexandre
