Have a walk, a philosophical one in Łazienki Park

The Royal Łazienki Museum Education Centre organizes a series of walks in the famous Łazienki Park in Warsaw.

Mind you, not just walks, but inspired by the philosophical tradition of Aristotle.

The description is so tempting, you simply must go for such a walk:

Aristotle, Greek philosopher is often called a ‘peripatetic lecturer’ – in other words, he walked about with his followers as he taught them. During our walks in Łazienki, we will endeauvor to re-create this ancient model of academic community. Our walks are going to demonstrate that even in today’s fast-paced world, there is a place for philosophy. We are also going to explore the role of philosophy in people’s everyday lives, and to examine ways in which the contemporary world calls on us to re-examine and re-evaluate philosophical concepts. Walking in the park, sitting on a bench, looking at the sky above – and especially the sparkling conversations, hosted and moderated by a philosopher – will create an atmosphere conducive to exchange of thoughts and creation of new ideas.

The first walk is planned for April 3
” Socrates, Plato, Aristotle: the dialogue and the master-pupil relation as the essence of philosophy”

All walks are offered in English!!!!
