World Philosophy Day is observed on 21 November

21 November 2019 Current Affairs:World Philosophy Day is observed on 21 November every year. The day is observed every third Thursday of November month. On this day, UNESCO highlighted the value of philosophy for the development of human thought, for each culture and individual. 

Aim:
The 2019 observance highlights the importance of philosophy in different regional contexts. The day aims to obtain regional contributions to global debates on contemporary challenges that support social transformations. The purpose of the approach is to foster regional dynamics, stimulating global collaboration to address major challenges such as artificial intelligence (AI), radicalization, migration, or environmental change.

History:
World Philosophy Day was instituted in 2002 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The day was designated to renew the commitment of the national, subregional, regional, and international to the philosophy and to foster philosophical research, analysis, and studies on major contemporary issues. In 2005, the UNESCO General Conference proclaimed the observance of the World Philosophy Day on every third Thursday of November.

Philosophy: It means creation or study of theories about basic things such as the knowledge, nature of existence, and thought, or about how people should live and deal with a particular situation.
