A tasty encounter with ideas from across the globe

Co-created by 7 young adults & 7 philosophers

What do we do?

Food & Philosophy

In the TV series and book Food for Thought, 7 young people start a dialogue with 7 philosophers. As food is simply the best way to connect with one another, we cook and eat together while reflecting on crucial life questions.
By bringing philosophy into the kitchen we put theory into practice: we taste and chew on new ideas, apply different concepts, and inspire each other.


How can philosophy help us in daily life?

The 7 philosophers are expert thinkers in various global traditions of thought. Together we explore these different ways of thinking to find solutions for our most pressing issues. How do we navigate this complex and ever-changing world? What can we do to change the state of it? And where to even begin looking for answers?


Cook, dine, and discuss with us!

In Food for Thought we dive beneath the surface of our conventional way of thinking. Taking dialogue as a starting point, we challenge each other to try on different views and enrich our own perspectives. Join the community and think with us!
