World Philosophy Day 2022 is observed on 17 November

World Philosophy Day 2022: Every year on the third Thursday of November, World Philosophy Day is observed. This year it will fall on November 17. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed it an International day in 2005. However, that was not always the case. The inaugural World Philosophy Day was observed on November 21, 2002. UNESCO aimed to raise public awareness about philosophy and how vital it is, not only to connect the world today but to the past and present, as well as for a better understanding of the future.

World Philosophy Day is commemorated to encourage people in learning about philosophy and how to speak out their philosophical thoughts. Philosophy as a discipline is vital in understanding the world better. It is also a stepping stone towards peaceful coexistence among people from around the world. There seems hardly any coincidence that World Philosophy Day falls close to International Tolerance Day.
