Happy World Philosophy Day! Today is designated World Philosophy Day for 2012 by UNESCO's General Conference.
This is what UNESCO says:
In establishing World Philosophy Day in 2005, the General Conference highlighted the importance of this discipline, especially for young people, underlining that “philosophy is a discipline that encourages critical and independent thought and is capable of working towards a better understanding of the world and promoting tolerance and peace”.
Can anyone dispute that?
