But whatever we do the only power we have is the power of the word, the power of language, of speech, as teachers, educators, lecturers, reviewers, opinion makers. A great philosopher of the XXth century said: "The word is my kingdom - la parole est mon royaume - and I am not ashamed of it".
I consider this account as one of the most urgent tasks for philosophers today who want to rethink philosophy and who want to apply their capacities in analysis and criticism of the most urgent problem we have in our time: How do we avoid by our words "the clash of civilizations" that Samuel P. Huntington has seen as the greatest threat to humanity in our century?
But I would ask: Was this unhappy story not the consequence of bad philosophy?
I have prepared a more substantial report for this period to the General Assembly that will take place on Sunday August 3rd.
As usual I have divided my report to you into two parts: the first part concerning the past, the second part concerning the future. But the planning of the next world congress and all the activities linked to that is not our task: A new Steering Committee and a new leadership shall take care of that. Therefore I shall only briefly tell you about what has happened concerning FISP in the year since our previous Steering Committee meeting at Mali Loinj and add some more general remarks.
I am grateful for this important support as I am in debt to the former rector of the Danish University of Education, Lars-Henrik Schmidt, who supported FISP during his whole term.
In this way, I have been able to continue to have the daily assistance of Chief Secretary Hannah Mia Hendriksen as the administrative secretary for FISP.
It was, like the previous Olympiads, a great success, and from the side of FISP the past president Ioanna Kuçuradi, our Secretary General, and I myself participated.
