Ask a Philosopher Table
Thursday, November 21 is World Philosophy Day! We are featuring a couple of engaging events on campus in celebration.
The Philosophy Department will be hosting an "Ask a Philosopher Table" in the lobby of the University Center from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. Stop by and ask our faculty members your most pressing philosophical questions, get information about studying philosophy, or try a thought experiment!
From 4:30 - 6:00 p.m. in Bethany Hall A, the Philosophy Club is sponsoring a talk by Amitabha Palmer, doctoral candidate in philosophy at Bowling Green State University, entitled, "How to Get Angry Online—Properly." Please join us for this interesting and informative talk!
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) first introduced World Philosophy Day in 2002. In 2005, the UNESCO General Conference officially designated every third Thursday of November as World Philosophy Day.
A central aim of World Philosophy Day is to raise public awareness of the importance of philosophy and of its use in addressing and responding to the choices and challenges facing humanity today. People all over the world are encouraged to celebrate philosophy by engaging in philosophical thought, discussion, and debate.
