Modern social issues seem to be making it difficult to locate the UNESCO-sponsored 'World Philosophy Day' in any one city or country (D. D. Guttenplan in the global edition of the New York Times, Monday 25th October 2010).

... Which is a little odd, since philosophy is not inherently a social or a natural science, nor is it restricted in its cultural scope.

I suspect we are all born as philosophers, and are then mostly trained to become something else, with only faint traces of our initial naivety and philosophical character allowed to remain.

I would like World Philosophy Day to be celebrated everywhere and nowhere in particular.
