UNESCO has established, since 2002, as the third Thursday in November to celebrate PHILOSOPHY- The best school of thought and freedom of human!
That's why the pleasure to chat with our twins was increase, especially because it was a special day, Philosophy Day. Celebrated since 21 November 2002, as the intellectual and ethical arm of the United Nations, function without promoting philosophical reflection as the basis for democracy, human rights and a right society.
Philosophy, as the term signifies, is the love of wisdom. Regardless of its specific terminology in various cultures all over the world, tetsugaku in Japanese, indicating the discipline of wisdom, or in Arabic, falsafa, meaning science of wisdom, this act of thinking about thinking turns by definition around the fundamental concepts and ideas that lie at the heart of existence, both individual and collective. It is this act of philosophizing that is the lifeblood of philosophy. And it is precisely this act of reflection, of analysis, of questioning – whether of concepts that are taken for granted, ideas dulled by time, or long-established paradigms.
Today we were in chat and we discussed those topics, following the philosophy direction, that influence and helping students to develop honesty, integrity, character and a life-long love for the pursuit of wisdom as a foundation for a happy, successful and generous life.
