The Philosophical Encounters of Monaco organisation, founded by Charlotte Casiraghi (the daughter of H.R.H. Princess Caroline) and the philosophers Joseph Cohen, Robert Maggiori and Raphael Zagury-Orly, proposes a new purpose for philosophy.

Monthly meetings held in Monaco or Paris bring together well-known guest speakers to debate, communicate and take an in-depth look at the organisation’s annual themes.

After ‘Love’, ‘The Body’ and ‘Containing the Violence Within’, the theme for the 2018/2019 lecture cycle is ‘The Human Being’.

Through these themes, Philosophical Encounters of Monaco aims to share modern philosophy more widely and to help each of us better understand its vital contribution.

To achieve this, the numerous lectures and monthly workshops feature the most eminent figures in contemporary philosophy.

Philosophical Encounters of Monaco also provides an opportunity for school children of all ages to access philosophy, offering them ways of thinking which complement those of their teachers, and new, original and clear analysis of universal challenges.

Furthermore, in May 2019 Philosophical Encounters of Monaco launched a new event in the Principality: the “Young Philosophers” series.

Organised in partnership with the Prince’s Government and the Department of Education, Youth and Sport, this series of one-day events open to all aim to introduce and raise awareness of philosophy in the classroom from a very early age.

Philosophy is a discipline which has its place in Monaco, since it supports any kind of creativity or knowledge by introducing critical examination.

We started this project as a result of a deep and sincere desire to celebrate philosophy and integrate it into the Principality’s cultural life.
