Each year, UNESCO designates the third Thursday in November as World Philosophy Day. To mark World Philosophy Day this year, the APA has organized a webinar for APA members: Global Perspectives: African Philosophy and History of Philosophy.

This webinar is sponsored by the APA’s Committee on International Cooperation. The purpose of the webinar is to consider and reflect upon philosophy in global and international contexts. Panelists will examine why African philosophy makes a significant contribution to world philosophy and will consider what it might mean to analyze the history of philosophy in global context. If you are interested in African philosophy, world philosophy, or philosophy in global context, then this webinar is for you.

The panelists for the webinar are as follows:

  • Yoko Arisaka, Research Associate, University of Hildesheim
  • Rebecca Bamford, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, Queen’s University Belfast (chair)
  • Bruce Janz, Professor of Philosophy, University of Central Florida
  • Bernard Matolino, Associate Professor of Philosophy, University of KwaZulu-Natal


The webinar will be held on Thursday, November 18 at 12 p.m. Eastern time / 9 a.m. Pacific time. To participate, register on the APA website. Registration will be available until 9 a.m. Eastern time / 6 a.m. Pacific time on the day of the webinar, and access information will be provided to registrants at least one hour prior to the start of the webinar. Registration is limited to current APA members.
