Web Desk: World Philosophy Day is being observed today (Thursday) around the world.

Purpose of the day is to raise public awareness on the importance of philosophy for future generations.

It is a day for people to share thoughts, openly explore and discuss new ideas and inspire public debate or discussion on society’s challenges.

World Philosophy Day is a UNESCO initiative that draws people around the world to engage in shared reflection on contemporary issues.

Various events and activities include: Philosophical dialogues, debates, lectures, and meetings involving renowned philosophers. International conferences on philosophical topics such as the connection between philosophy, education and culture.

Philosophy has opened the door for new concepts and innovative ideas, laying the foundations of critical thinking, independence and creativity across cultures for many centuries.

UNESCO introduced World Philosophy Day in 2002 to honour philosophical reflections throughout the world by opening spaces and encouraging people to share their philosophical heritage.
