World Philosophy Day: Future Generations

World Philosophy Day was introduced in 2002 by UNESCO “to honor philosophical reflection in the entire world by opening up free and accessible spaces.” Bilkent University's Department of Philosophy has been celebrating this tradition since 2005. To mark this year's UNESCO World Philosophy Day -- for which the designated theme is "Future Generations" -- the Department of Philosophy, together with the Bilkent Philosophy Society, is organizing a two-day event.
