The mysterious language of symbols (Slovakia, Košice)

World Philosophy Day

New Acropolis in Košice organized an evening on the theme of symbols for a World Philosophy Day 2022 . The participants got familiar not just with the myths of Hercules, Theseus, Psyche, Perseus or Oedipus and the sphinx, but also with the deeper – symbolic meaning of these figures and their actions, which, understood in this way, can be an instructive inspiration for today’s man and his current life.

In addition to talking, the participants could practically try what it’s like to hit Medusa in a mirror reflection, or walk through a dark labyrinth, sort out symbols according to cultures, or make a self made replica of the symbol as a souvenir of the evening.

The fact that it took almost double the planned time also showed to the interest and success of the event – this fact clearly didn’t bother anyone…
