Happy World Philosophy Day ( Nov 15 th )

Happy Philosophy day
“I know that I know nothing” Socrates

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

“Philosophy is an inspiring discipline as well as an everyday practice that can transform societies. By enabling us to discover the diversity of the intellectual currents in the world, philosophy stimulates intercultural dialogue. By awakening minds to the exercise of thinking and the reasoned confrontation of opinions, philosophy helps to build a more tolerant, more respectful society. For UNESCO, it is also the way to unleash humanity’s creative potential and generate new ideas. Philosophy creates the intellectual conditions for change, sustainable development and peace. ”

Audrey Azoulay
UNESCO Director-Genera

This field, which sees itself as a form of “wisdom”, teaches us to reflect on reflection itself, to continually question well-established truths, to verify hypotheses and to find conclusions.

(UNESCO)
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.(timeanddate.com)

    A filosofia como você bem
    disse tem muitas utilidades.
    Infelizmente as perguntas básicas que afligem o ser humano há milhares de anos ainda não foram respondidas:
    – O que é a consciência, o que é
    Vida, qual o sentido da vida, de
    onde viemos…
    Os eternos mistérios
    Muito bom seu texto
    Um abraço
    Luiz

    1. Olá, minha querida amiga Ética Hoje, muito obrigada por dedicar seu tempo e obrigado. Você disse com razão sobre certas questões não respondidas sobre a vida, de onde viemos e para onde estamos indo, o propósito da vida, a consciência. Estamos ansiosos para obter respostas a essas perguntas ao longo do tempo, melhorando nosso conhecimento de filosofia. Obrigado mais uma vez e um abraço.
