For the seventh consecutive year, The Night of Philosophy returns in 2023, now back in its original, in-person format. Given the situation our country, and the world, is going through, this year’s central theme will be: Democracy in Question.
As a reminder, The Night of Philosophy is a festive encounter of reflection throughout an entire night, in which the public is invited to exchange ideas with philosophers and artists on current issues, following a format of short, agile talks with a great variety of themes and participants. The event was created by French philosopher and playwright Mériam Korichi in Paris in 2010 and has since been regularly replicated in many other cities around the world, such as London, New York, Berlin, Prague, Athens, Buenos Aires, and Lima, among others. It is a free event, open to the interested public.
It will take place on the night of Friday, May 12th, from 5:00 pm onwards, in two venues: the Vichama Theater in Villa El Salvador (until midnight) and the Cultural Center of PUCP (until 3am the next day).
More than a hundred philosophers, journalists, musicians, and artists will dialogue with the public on the social and political crisis affecting our supposedly democratic system of coexistence, not only in Peru but throughout the world.
The event is co-organized by the Center for Philosophical Studies and the Cultural Center of PUCP, as well as the Vichama Theater in Villa El Salvador, with the collaboration of the Embassy of France in Peru.
