Philosophy means love of wisdom (philo-sophia) and is an active attitude of awareness towards life. As the world becomes increasingly complex, philosophy offers us a way to view life and its lessons as opportunities, not problems.
We are all born philosophers, with an innate need to ask “why,” to learn and grow from our mistakes and become our true selves.
The practice of seeking truth develops our self-confidence, moral strength and resilience to face difficulties and weather crises. It allows us to become the hero or heroine in our lives, and actors in history."
The event will be held as a class/open lecture on the importance of philosophy throughout history, with time for engaging the audience with questions in a workshop-style approach. The aim is to emphasize philosophy as a practical tool that can give a fresh perspective of ourselves and the world.
