The Institute for Ecosophical Studies has as its purpose stimulating interest in and assisting development of philosophies of ecological harmony; encouraging, promoting, and publishing ecosophical writings, research, and art; providing opportunities for scientists and artists, philosophers and environmentalists to meet and discuss their respective perspectives on the earth-human process. Out of this study and dialogue will emerge an ecological wisdom that combines knowledge and sensitivity, objective investigation and subjective communion.
