World Philosophy Day in Turkey this year

Celebrated annually since 2002 on the third Thursday of November following a UNESCO decision, World Philosophy Day was celebrated in Chile in 2005 and in Morocco in 2006.

This year’s host is Turkey, where festivities will be held in Istanbul 22-23 November in a cooperation between UNESCO, the UNESCO Turkey National Commission and the Philosophical Association of Turkey. Aimed at drawing attention to the possibilities for seeing, thinking and acting that philosophy can impart, World Philosophy Day activities will take place at the Ataturk Culture Center and The Marmara Hotel. Everyone is welcome.
