The Festival of Philosophy in Greece is an interdisciplinary program designed for high school students.
The Festival combines in its mission the didactic value with the aim of the project of territorial enhancement, created for the re-evaluation in periods of low season of places of historical- archaeological interest, a symbol of Mediterranean culture and Western philosophical thought, with particular reference to Greece.
The cultural offer, with an alternative methodology, offers participants (students and ad hoc, even adults) an experiential learning path through: philosophical dialogues, Philosophical theatrical walks (peripatos) and practical philosophy workshops, generally of 4/5 days.
In March 2019, for the fifth time, an edition will be organized in Greece (Athens, Delphi, Messini, and Epidavros) with the theme "Philia", with about 2000 high school students coming from all over Europe. An event of cultural detailed study program with a strong social connotation: the popularization of philosophy, in experiential form among high school students. The aim is to propose opportunities and paths of non-formal education related to philosophy.
The initiative is one of the international events of cultural study, and it is therefore an instrument of territorial enhancement that engages in a broader strategy for the upgrading of cultural offerings.
‘Philosophy and Europe’
Western philosophy is born with a heart and a Mediterranean logos that has conjugated and exalted all of Europe. This exceptional puzzle of cultures and philosophical paradigms, that is the European identity, must rediscover the profound attitudes to dialectics and common growth through the Epistemological diversity that compose it: from Greece to France, from Italy to Germany and all the cultures that interpret European thought. Only in this way can philosophy recover its ancient task and give life to the present but above all to a future of profitable contaminations, and common growth.
