Just imagine it. A day in which philosophers from all nations and cultures could share ideas, and freely criticize one another’s arguments without feat of censorship or imprisonment. Where would you have such an event? In one of the world’s most brutal, closed-minded, and mendacious nations, of course.

    I can see the consequence of not having philosophers attend, speak up, and risk the possibility of being physically imposed on. On the other hand though, I can see the benefits of opening up Iran to be outside values and traditions. The question is whether the benefits outweigh the costs, in a non-economical sense.
