Here’s yet another conference I’m missing.
The World Congress of Philosophy, held only once every five years, is now underway in Seoul, South Korea.
The theme of the meeting is Rethinking Philosophy Today, which, if you really think about it, is pretty much what philosophers do all the time anyway.
Ok, so this may or may not be an important meeting – I have no clue.
However, I find it very interesting that a mainstream British newspaper would allocate resources to report on and explain it to their audience.
In the US we call that being elitist and intellectual. Two very serious terms of derision.
