The Philosophy Olympiad is a competition for students who are interested in philosophy. In three qualification rounds leading to the International Philosophy Olympiad, the participants write philosophical essays. In the semi-finals and the national final, students from all over Switzerland meet to debate philosophical concepts, to exchange ideas and to enhance their education.
Anyone who attends a Swiss secondary school can take part in our competition. It is not necessary to have read Plato, Nietzsche or Aristotle to participate; an interest in philosophy is enough!
