UNESCO World Philosophy Day 2016: Prof. Roberta de Monticelli ‘On the So Called ‘Clash of Civilizations’: Value Pluralism in the Light of Phenomenology’

Maynooth University,  Department of Philosophy

When: Thursday, November 17, 2016 – 18:00 to 20:00

‘Faced with the complexity of today’s world, philosophical reflection is above all a call to humility, to take a step back and engage in reasoned dialogue, to build together the solutions to challenges that are beyond our control. This is the best way to educate enlightened citizens, equipped to fight stupidity and prejudice. The greater the difficulties encountered the greater the need for philosophy to make sense of questions of peace and sustainable development.’

Irina Bokova, UNESCO Director-General

The goal of this event is, as Moufida Goucha, secretary of the SHS Commission of UNESCO, stated regarding World Philosophy Day ’a unity of action, of common action, to reaffirm the true value of philosophy, that is to say the establishment of dialogue that must never cease when it comes to essential matters, and of thought which gives us back a large part of human dignity whatever our condition’.
Speaker
Prof. Roberta de Monticelli is one of the most acknowledged contemporary phenomenologists in Italy and Full Professor for Philosophy of Personhood at San Raffaele University, Milan, and Director of PERSONA (Research Centre in Phenomenology and Sciences of the Person)
