International Kant Billiards Tournament

Io continuo a collezionare i più pazzi call for papers, avvisi di conferenze e di nuovi libri. Ne ho così tanti e sono così lunghi che ho pensato, appena ho un po' di tempo, di aprire un blog specializzato.
Nel frattempo però non potevo risparmiarvi questo gioiello che mi è arrivato oggi: il biliardo di Kant!

The 12th International Immanuel Kant Billiards Tournament Helsinki Thursday 15 December 2005

We invitate you to participate in the 12th International Kant Billiards Tournament. The game is 9-ball billiards. Easy-to-learn rules will be given before the tournament.

The event takes place at CORONA BAR (addr. Eerikinkatu 11) in the heart of Helsinki from 7.30 PM.

On the UNESCO international philosophy events in Finland are organized by the AIIPh Baltic Sea Net, the Finnish UNESCO ASPnet, The Finnish Association for Teachers of Philosophy and Philosophy of Life and Societas Philosophica Fennica. The Kant billiards tournament is one of these events. During the occasion the names of the Finnish training team for next year's philosophy olympiad will be made public.

As we all know, the most significant philosopher from Baltic Sea area, Immanuel Kant spent active social life in Königsberg. He was an enthusiastic player of billiards and a great gourmand: he had two pictures hanging on his workroom wall, Kant making mustard just next to the picture of J-J. Rousseau. The first prize of the billard tournament is a can of Immanuel Kant's authentic mustard (an original spicy königsbergian delicacy found again 1992).
