The Masonic Philosophical Society seeks to recapture the spirit of the Renaissance that brought mankind so many scientific, artistic, and philosophical advancements without seeking to destroy spiritual pursuits.
While the progress of the Renaissance, of the 14th century, can be largely attributed to newly available literature and methods for wide distribution of information The Masonic Philosophical Society recognizes a new challenge in our modern world.
Access to information has never been greater. However, the sheer volume of data accessible to mankind can be daunting without the aid of a curriculum or a guide.
The Masonic Philosophical Society embraces the concept of learning, not for school, but for life, and believes that all men, who seek it, deserve access to continued education.
We further embrace the concept of a community environment, where ideas can be shared and debated in an open forum.
From the seven liberal arts to the arcane, we seek to gain and to share the knowledge that is the legacy of mankind.
The Masonic Philosophical Society is an institution dedicated to the exploration of Physical, Metaphysical, and Cultural aspects of humanity by studying objective, subjective and expressive knowledge.
Each Masonic Philosophical Society Study Center is designed to ignite discussion centered on these three essential triangles of knowledge.
Each discipline can be further broken down into three sub-disciplines, which to the investigative person, will help to expand his awareness and understanding of the universe and his place within it.
Natural Science is a systematic exploration of the principles that make up the whole of creation in symmetry and order. The study of these laws, which govern the Universe, empowers the Seeker to better understand himself.
Fields of Study: Astronomy, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Etc.
Why has man created civilization? Why do we need each other? What causes our behavior? The Behavioral Sciences teaches us about the evolution of the individual and society.
Humanity is an endless web of actions, reactions, and traditions.
The one who can begin to understand this will begin to understand himself.
Field of Studies: Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, Etc.
The mathematical mysteries and complexities which reside infinitely in the construct of matter and nature allow man to witness the hidden beauty of life.
The empirical nature of the Formal Sciences inspires one to search for the patterns within and without.
To find Truth one must employ the aid of reason and logic.
Field of Studies: Mathematics, Logic, Statistics
What is reality? What is the nature and depth of knowledge? What is justice? Philosophy has attempted throughout the ages to answer these timeless questions.
It seeks to systemically uncover the Truth that lies beyond the diversity of ideas.
Field of Studies: Ethics, Epistemology, Metaphysics, Esthetics, Politics, Etc.
Man has looked to the heavens for thousands of years wondering if there is something, someone, higher than himself who controls his fate and hears his words.
This investigation into the nature of God have led men to create and practice systems of religion.
Field of Studies: Comparative Religion, Etc.
Is there a limit to knowledge? Is the life of one integrated in the pattern of the stars? Esotericism is the studies of the Initiate who seeks to know the hidden mysteries of nature and science; thus leading him to inner knowledge.
Field of Studies: Alchemy, Astrology, Mysticism, Hermeticism, Etc.
Man expresses himself by capturing his emotions, thoughts and movements in artistic forms.
Whether by a musical masterpiece, a beautiful dance or a fine sculpture; Art is the manifestation of man’s inner universe.
Field of Studies: Dance, Theater, Music, Painting, Sculpture, Architecture, Etc.
The pen has always been the method by which the story of heroes, lives never lived, and the deepest tragedies have been told.
The imagination of Man is made manifest in the pages of books.
Literature is one of the most enduring of man’s creations, giving us glimpses of our past, present and future.
Field of Studies: Poetry, Short Stories, and Novels, Etc.
The penning of Humanity’s existence should never be met with indifference.
The rise and fall of civilization and of those who existed before us allows us to create a bridge to our future.
Those that fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat its mistakes.
Field of Studies: Economics, Archeology, Demography, Philology, Etc.
