Today is World Philosophy Day: How should we celebrate it?
Today is World Philosophy Day, at least as declared by the fine people at UNESCO. No celebrations were planned where I am (in part because we didn't know it was World Philosophy Day), but I am forced to wonder what would the ideal celebration would be. In Plato's Symposium, the philosophers decide that they should celebrate by rejecting alcohol and discussing the true nature of Love. I find, however, that a little alcohol might actually help the discussion. At least, in that respect, I follow the advice of the Philosophy Professors at the University of Wooloomooloo in Australia. (See the video below.)
If you could do anything you wanted, how would YOU celebrate this esteemed holiday?
