Central Library will open its doors for a 12-hour marathon of philosophical debate, performances, screenings, readings and music. A Night of Philosophy & Ideas will feature discussions led by some of the world’s foremost philosophers and thinkers on the most challenging and fascinating issues confronting individuals, states and societies today. A wide range of events will take place simultaneously throughout the evening.
The public can join Simon Critchley at 5 am for a discussion of tragedy; participate in a five-hour marathon community reading of Democracy in America; stretch their minds and body to a Yoga & Philosophy session in the library’s grand lobby at 1 am; and more. For the first time, Central Library is open all night for the community to explore, with screenings, performances, and talks held throughout the building. All events are free and open to the public.
