World Philosophy Day

2014 World Philosophy Day

2014 World Philosophy Day

The World Philosophy Day was established by the General Conference of UNESCO in 2005. At Keele, we have celebrated it every year, since the creation of the Forum for Philosophical Research with the ‘Jean-Jacques Rousseau’ Annual Lecture and Conference in 2008.

This day marks the importance of philosophy, especially for young people; as highlighted at the 2005 UNESCO General Conference, “philosophy is a discipline that encourages critical and independent thought and is capable of working towards a better understanding of the world and promoting tolerance and peace ”.

In 2016, the World Philosophy Day will be on 17 November. At Keele, we will celebrate it by two important events, both organised under the aegis of the newly created Keele-Oxford-St. Andrews Kantian (KOSAK) Research Centre: the ‘Jean-Jacques Rousseau’ Annual Lecture and Conference.

Further information will be posted here in due course.
