Night of Philosophy in Buenos Aires

After New York, Athens and Tel Aviv in April and May of 2015, it is Buenos Aires’ turn to organize its own Night of Philosophy. This is a Franco-German cooperation project.
On June 27, 2015, the Buenos Aires edition of a Night of Philosophy will bring together about 30 French, German and Argentinian philosophers.
From 7 p.m. until 7 a.m., at the Centro Cultural San Martin – the most popular and dynamic cultural spot in the city – Argentinian, German and French philosophers will offer conferences of about 20 minutes each (mostly in Spanish) on a varied number of topics for an overview of major questions concerning philosophy, and beyond, to question the world we live in. Screenings of feature films, documentaries, performances, readings, an ‘‘infinite conversation’’ area where philosophers will be able to, all night long, exchange with the public, a cartoonist drawing the participants live, exhibits, music, activities for a younger public, a temporary bookstore and a philosophy café will make this Night of Philosophy, open to everyone, a major festive event.
This first Argentinian Philosophy Night , after London (2012 and 2013), Berlin (June 2014), Zagreb (December 2013), Rabat (November 2014), and in 2015 New York (April 24), Athens (May 8) and Tel Aviv (May 28), in response to a great interest on the part of Argentinians in contemporary European philosophy, will give the public an opportunity to encounter today’s thought, where they will be able to listen, think, discuss, exchange, meet and see philosophy in a new light.
The fruit of a partnership between the Institut français in Argentina, the Goethe-Institut and the City of Buenos Aires, this event is supported by the Franco-German Cultural Fund, one that supports Franco-German cooperation in other countries.
