Happy world philosophy day Nov 21


Philosophy derives from Two Greek words,Philos (love) & Sophia(wisdom).
Philosophy sheds light on the causes of various situations happening in this world and when you start asking questions in the form of ‘Why’…. remember,you start thinking like a philosopher.

“An unexamined life is not worth living” Socrates

By celebrating World Philosophy Day each year, on the third Thursday of November,UNESCO underlines the enduring value of philosophy for the development of human thought, for each culture and for each individual.

Message from the Director General

Philosophy thrives on the human need to understand the world around us and identify principles by which to guide our actions. This ancient need is no less compelling today. Nearly 3,000 years after philosophy first emerged in China, the Middle East and ancient Greece, the questions raised in the pursuit of wisdom throughout the ages have lost none of their relevance or universality; in fact, quite the opposite is true.

In an increasingly complex world – one in which uncertainty prevails, societal changes and technological revolutions scramble traditional reference points, and we face huge social and political challenges – philosophy remains a vital resource. It allows us to step back and slow down and it lights the way ahead.”

Audrey Azoulay,Director general,message on the occasion of World Philosophy Day
