“Being a Stoic – day by day” – This was the title of our event in Munich to mark UNESCO World Philosophy Day. Stoic philosophy is practical, and it is as relevant today as it was then. We were therefore delighted to welcome so many new, young and predominantly male first-time visitors, who were naturally drawn to this topic. Four speakers led through the evening with humor, authenticity, seriousness and depth. Their inspiration was reflected by the glowing faces of the visitors.
After a brief introduction of the basic ideas, the evening continued with 3 practical workshops and the opportunity for lively discussion, based on the teachings of Seneca, Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius.
The UNESCO World Philosophy Day was also celebrated by the philosophical colleagues in Nuremberg, where the presenting ladies concentrated on the topic of Beauty.
