I Conference "Great questions of current philosophy"
The Ferrater Mora Chair initiated a laborious process to strengthen relations between philosophy teachers of all educational levels and to discuss the future of philosophy in our educational system.
Thus, on January 22, a letter was sent to all the philosophy teachers of the secondary schools of the Girona region, proposing initiatives of collaboration between these teachers and those of the University of Girona. The Chair analyzed the answers to the questions raised and, as a result, organized the first days, entitled “Great questions of current philosophy”, to discuss the problems that affect the professionals of philosophy and also to reflect on interesting topics for the personal training of teachers.
