World Philosophy Day 2015: roundtable on plurality of languages and places of philosophy
A roundtable debate is being organized on the issues of the plurality of languages and places of philosophy.
The full programme will be broadcast live on the internet, and an effort will be made to ensure the presence of philosophical themes in social media.
The meeting will bring together philosophers from different countries and aims to address issues concerning three major topics:
- Knowledge and dissemination of philosophical thought of non-Western cultures, especially through new technologies;
- Philosophy outside of the academic enclosure, using new places and formats; and
- The variety of places and forms of teaching and learning philosophy.
The UNESCO Chair on the Practice of Philosophy with Children, being established at the University of Nantes (France), will also be presented.
Follow the debates online on 19 November from 2 to 5 p.m. GMT +1
