Happening to Raise Awareness about World Philosophy Day (London, UK)

World Philosophy Day

In anticipation of World Philosophy Day, which takes place on Thursday 18 November this year, groups of philosophy students and teachers from New Acropolis London went out to meet members of the public and enter into philosophical dialogues with them on the theme ‘Can Philosophy Help to Build a Better World?’.

The response of the public was overwhelmingly positive towards philosophy and the initiative of our volunteers to engage with people in public spaces.

It was heartening to see that so many people of all ages and from all walks of life could see the importance of philosophy for improving the human being, and enjoyed reflecting about the ways in which our world would be a better place if we gave more time to philosophical reflection and expressed it in positive actions.
