The Ferrater Mora Chair of Contemporary Thought was created on November 2, 1989 with the basic objective of organizing contemporary thinking courses led by eminent thinkers with internationally renowned prestige. It is a chair of thought - and not strictly philosophy - because it is open to the interdisciplinary teaching of personalities from different fields, including philosophy, science and arts, formal, experimental, historical and human. It is also a chair of contemporary thought in a very strict sense, because invited professors set out the main lines of their own thinking. From its creation to this day, the Chair has regular teaching periods every year: during the month of November and during the month of June. The first lecture was led by Professor Josep Ferrater Mora in November 1989.
