Happy World Philosophy Day!


Every year on the third Thursday of November, World Philosophy Day is celebrated. It was initiated by UNESCO in 2002. Currently, this day is celebrated in more than 80 countries.

Philosophy is love for wisdom, it is born from the desire of people to know themselves and the world around them. This science laid the foundation for critical, independent and creative thinking. It encourages us to explore fundamental truths, produce our own theories and conclusions.

The purpose of the holiday is to find a common platform for discussing the global socio-cultural transformations that are taking place now, to attract people to the philosophical heritage, to understand the sphere of everyday thinking for new ideas and to stimulate a public debate among thinkers and civil society on the challenges facing society today.

Philosophy played a special role in the development of Kharkiv University. The German philosopher, first full professor of philosophy of Kharkiv University, Johann Baptist Shad, stood at the origins of the University philosophical tradition in Kharkiv. He founded Kharkiv University School of Theoretical and Practical Philosophy.

Currently, the University School of Philosophy is actively engaged in both educational and scientific activities.

The School has five departments: J. B. Shad Department of Theoretical and Practical Philosophy, Department of Theory of Culture and Philosophy of Science, Department of Valeology, Department of Political Science, Department of Ukrainian Studies. Another part of the School of Philosophy is D. I. Bahalii Center for Ukrainian Studies, which conducts scientific, educational, and publishing activities.

The School graduates work as teachers of philosophical and culturological disciplines, assistants, culturologists, consultants and experts on socio-political issues, journalists, art curators, exhibition coordinators or in the civil service, in the fields of political science, economics, psychology.

Congratulations on the holiday, wishes of boundless inspiration, life achievements and wisdom!
