Talk : Thu 19 of November - 7 PM
Online Talk: World Philosophy Day - Philosophy for a VUCA world
VUCA is an acronym for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. It was introduced in the late 1990s to describe the world that resulted from the end of the cold war and was subsequently adopted by business. It has gained wider popularity in recent years, especially in 2020.
However, throughout history humanity has had to face many VUCA times and philosophy has always been a valuable tool to overcome the challenges. In times of crisis, philosophy is not a luxury but a necessity and one of the most useful means for finding sustainable solutions. This is why we would like to celebrate this years World Philosophy Day by showing how philosophy can help us deal with our rapidly changing world and equip us with a framework of timeless values and principles that have provided a stable point of reference in the past and can continue to do so today.
There will be four 20-minute presentations on each of the 4 concepts of VUCA, by 4 different speakers, with time for questions and answers after each session.
