Philosophy returns to its origins when it is talked about in the park in Helsinki: The Hague Park Philosophy event brings together researchers and those interested in the Alpine Rose Park on Saturday 14 August.
The program has discussions, philosophical walks and an on-call philosopher with whom you can talk. There is a program for children and young people as well as their parents.
In the parks and gardens have played a central role in the history of philosophy.
“Of the parks, this has set in motion,” says the author Jukka Laajarinne.
“The greatest stars of Greek philosophy towards the end of the classical period have influenced park environments. Platonic academy, Aristotelian lykeion and Epicurus the park of pleasures were all parks. ”
Laajarinne guides place-consciousness walks at the Park Philosophy event.
Why have parks been so essential to the development of philosophy?
“Parks and gardens are perceived as fairly peaceful environments. There you are safe from unnecessary hustle and bustle. They are places to think about. ”
Laajarinne ponders how parks are calming places in other cultures as well. He mentions, for example, Zen gardens, which are also associated with symbolic and abstract structures that excite meditation.
“Not to mention Christianity, where the entire history of mankind begins in the Garden of Eden and ends in paradise.”
The Hague learning together is important for the international organizer of park philosophy, the Kvs Foundation.
“We wanted to bring together people from different backgrounds who are ready to open up their own ideas,” says the event’s producer, the Kvs Foundation. Annu Griñan.
“Philosophy is easily perceived as a distant thing from everyday life. We want to bring everyday learning and everyday education to people. ”
It is also intended to highlight the urban environment as a place to learn. In case of rain, canopies have been arranged in the park.
According to him, there is an order for the event. A Youth Philosophy Event has been held in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area.
“Ikaalinen has the nearest park philosophy event. This is obviously true. “
Filo ry (Philosophy for children, young people and communities) holds a learning workshop for children and young people.
“Two teachers guide children and young people from the age of three upwards to consider values, for example. They also guide parents to encourage philosophical themes. The themes are friendship, loneliness and how to do good, ”says Griñan.
Author Jukka Laajarinne leads visitors to philosophical “place-consciousness walks”.
“People get an introductory question set that opens up perspectives. Then they get to go to the park on their own or with a friend, ”Laajarinne describes the walk.
Questions can be selected from four themes: repetition, power, time, or encounters. The intention is that the questions will help to perceive the environment in a different way. “You can come and talk to me during or after the walk.”
Laajarinne writes On the premisesin his collection of essays on how the human mind is the interaction between the human body and the environment. This is to be experienced through presence and observation exercises at The Hague Park Philosophy.
“For example, the theme of repetition can give rise to the idea of going around the same route twice and considering what things are repeating, how they change. It leads to reflection on the significance of repetition in the world and for humans. The focus is on waking up to perceive that environment in some way. Provides tunings for experience and thinking. “
