"We have it in our power, to begin the world anew." - Thomas Paine

The Mission of The Philosopher-Citizen Institute is to provide the necessary tools and environment to improve citizens' abilities to analyze and make rational decisions about the increasing complex political and social issues that face us all in the 21st Century.

On the deepest of levels, most of our fellow citizens truly desire to act with ethical courage and integrity, but they need to work in an atmosphere of civility and respect in order to foster these qualities. The Philosopher-Citizen Institute's programs create this atmosphere with consistency and stability.
