Philosophy Week in MonteCarlo, from Tuesday, June 11 to Sunday, June 16, 2024.

The goal is to create a “community” where the words and thoughts of philosophers circulate freely among everyone, illuminating, even if only with a faint light, the increasingly complex problems of the present time.


From Tuesday, June 11 to Sunday, June 16, 2024, numerous personalities will participate in conversations, interviews, round tables, dialogues with the public, and book presentations on the themes of Ecology, Education, Care, Women, and the Art of Living.

The Week’s Main Participants

PhiloMonaco Week will be attended by Charlotte Casiraghi, Laura Hugo, Robert Maggiori, Raphael Zagury-Orly, members of the Jury – Isabelle Alfandary, Paul Audi, Étienne Bimbenet, Catherine Chalier, Marc Crépon, Sandra Laugier, Claire Marin, Géraldine Muhlmann, Judith Revel, Camille Riquier, Patrick Savidan – and many other personalities present to participate in the meetings and exchange views with the public, including: Chantal Thomas of the Académie française, Anne Berest, Sarah Chiche, Vincent Delecroix, Raphaël Gaillard, Olivia Gazalé, Laurence Joseph, Alexandre Kouchner, Martin Legros, Philippe Meirieu, Corine Pelluchon, Laurent de Sutter, and Augustin Trapenard.
