Yes, you read it right: this is an entire night devoted to philosophy, hosted by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy. We start at 7pm on Friday 4/24 and go on until early morning on Saturday.

The program gathers a number of eminent philosophers from Europe and the US (yes, included yours truly!) for a wide array of conferences and discussions on our contemporary world and explores the way in which the discipline can inform current affairs.

This original format allows one to see and think of philosophy in a different light, to “think philosophy outside the box.” By bringing the event outside of the academic sphere, the goal of the night is to intrigue and surprise the audience by exposing them to works of art which touch upon philosophy and offer singular and unusual answers. The night offers a special programming of live artistic performances as well as cinematographic representations, music, and readings of plays by actors.
