By celebrating World Philosophy Day each year, on the third Thursday of November, UNESCO underlines the enduring value of philosophy for the development of human thought, for each culture and for each individual.
With this emphasis, New Acropolis engages as a school of philosophy in the classical tradition in sharing a vision of philosophy as a way of life. A timeless methodology for the transformation of the individual and society, transcending and uniting cultures, giving purpose to the individual and meaningful change for the collectivity.
