I have often wondered how many Ovi readers are aware that the magazine, over a span of ten years or so, has published a plethora of imaginary philosophical conversations on timely issues of the day concerned with the past and future of Western Civilization; a sort of “back to the future” philosophical operation.

Indeed, the love of philosophical speculation is one of the distinct features that makes this magazine unique and different from many others which pretend to be serious magazines of opinions but often turn out to be mere propaganda blogs. We can safely assume that the Ovi readership too possesses a passion for philosophy. For those special kind of readers, i.e., philosophy buffs of a reflexive bent, I have prepared a list of all those kinds of conversations posted in Ovi so far.

As with the previous list on Politics and Religion, for the convenience of the reader, and in order to make it easier for them to retrieve the text of the titles they may find attractive, I have included the link to each one of the 18 conversations and the date when each was posted.

Perhaps it is also worth mentioning here that the Ovi Symposium which appears on the 15th of each month is also in the mode of a conversation within the dialogic nature of philosophy.   Each issue of the symposium, in existence for four or five years now, can easily be retrieved via the Ovi search engine. Enjoy!
