5th Monaco Philosophical Meetings Colloquium - From Thursday 17 to Saturday 19 June 2021

The 5th Philosophical Meetings Colloquium will take place in Monaco from Thursday 17 to Saturday 19 June. At this event, there will be a meeting with the 2021 Prize finalists, as well as the awards ceremony and four round table meetings. In addition, for the first time, there will be a discussion at the Fort Antoine Theatre.

An innovative round table meeting devoted to philosophy and comics will conclude the Colloquium, on the occasion of the exhibition "Marginalia. All the Secrets of Comic Book Collections," which is being held at the NMNM throughout the summer.

As a side-event of the Colloquium, the founding members of the Monaco Philosophical Meetings (Charlotte Casiraghi, President, Robert Maggiori, Joseph Cohen and Raphael Zagury-Orly) have decided from now on to donate books published by publishing houses and collections that have already been awarded an Honorary Mention to the Monaco Multimedia Library.
