I hope you guys like this. I know you may be thinking, philosophy is a bit heavy for this particular forum. We like to have fun here. I like to have fun. The thing is, people make a mistake, in my opinion, in thinking that philosophy is all serious and no fun. It flexes the mind and once you get into it, it's like riding a bike: totally fun!!!!
But of course, this thread can also be for news relating to Charlotte Casiraghi's "philosophical encounters."
News, events, articles, books.

Philo Monaco (Les Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco) gave an honorable mention to the publishing house, Éditions Galilée. One of the founders of "Philomonaco", and Charlotte's lycée teacher and coauthor Robert Maggiori, made the four-minute speech to introduce Michel Delorme, Éditions Galilée founder. https://youtu.be/p9_DQ-jNbQk
Another of the founders of Philomonaco, Joseph Cohen, has led the discussion of "Antivirus philosophy," having remote discussions with other thinkers, in French of course. https://youtu.be/K80EMWtFI6Q
