For another year, Russia celebrated the annual festival ‘Philosophy as a way of life’ – dedicated to commemorate World Philosophy Day – with the motto ‘Searching for Harmony’. The New Acropolis Chelyabinsk branch participated for the first time with a program of activities entitled ‘The human being in search of harmony’. Via different types of art (cinema, theater, music) participants undertook an unusual journey through time and space. How can we find harmony with ourselves, with people and with the world around us in our difficult and tumultuous time? Trying to answer these questions, participants turned into characters from the book The Little Prince by Saint-Exupéry, traveled to Florence during the  Renaissance period and even became … sea-gulls from the famous story by Richard Bach. At the end of the event all participants united for a final song. The event was attended by a large audience, as well as by the head of the Department of Philosophy from one of the most prevalent universities of the Urals region.

An evening dedicated to the reading of short stories by O. Henry. This activity was presented for the first time and turned out to be a very creative experience. Texts appeared on a big screen and after reading them, participants began a debate. The activity focused on the meaning of each story, on the main ideas, as well as on the analysis of the characters. Participants tried to relate to the characters and understand the reasons for their actions.

The human being has always sought answers to the most relevant questions. One of the most important is the meaning of life. Do all our victories and satisfactions, our pain and our doubts have meaning? What is the point of life? Should we look for it? And if it exists: how can we fill our life with meaning? What advice can be given us by the wise persons of the past and of the present, from Socrates, Confucius and Seneca to Leo Tolstoy, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Viktor Frankl?

‘Literature night’ in New Acropolis Yekaterinburg was dedicated to the reading of The Master and Margarita by the famous Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov.

After reading a few episodes of the enormous volume by some of its characters, there was a discussion in order to deepen the meaning of this magical book.

The intensity of the plot inspired many attendees to read the whole story, a very significant result of the event.
