We are a not-for-profit organisation helping people to live happier, wiser and more meaningful lives within the pressure and complexity of the modern world. Watch our introductory video...
Modern life is complex, so we've brought together the key pieces of information you need to live well, presented in an interesting way. Some of it is to help you get perspective on your life in the world, and the rest is to be more informed about important things that affect your life and how you live it.
The topics in this section help you to develop a sense of perspective on your life in the great scheme of things - including in the universe, on the planet and in history.
Interesting and accessible background on some of the important ideas and institutions that overarch our society, including politics and economics.
Our knowledge of human beings as creatures continues to grow, and this section provides some interesting background on what makes us tick, including topics such as how our minds work and sociology.
In the modern world each of us has an effect on, and is affected by, the world around us. This section explores how our actions affect the wider world and how the wider world can influence and affect us.
In our lives we spend a lot of time working with abstract things, including ideas such as 'freedom', political views and abstract ideas like the meaning of life. This section helps us understand some of the most important abstract ideas in our lives and how to think about them.
