Ondřej Švec

A philosopher of everyday reality


Ondrej got his Ph.D.  at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Lyon and at the Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague. He chose philosophy because he found nothing more difficult among school subjects than that. He also perceives it an effective tool in the fight against stupidity. And above all against his own. That's also why he cares about spreading philosophy to people. The Night of Philosophy, the event he organized, attracted the attention of 2000 of them.

During TEDxPrague 2018, Ondřej will take a look at mistakes, failures and other negative twists in a new light. What meaning do they have for us? And can unexpected deviations from the path we consider normal, succeed in further development?
