The Institute aims at uniting the qualified representatives of the worldwide philosophical community toward a common effort of thought and action.
By bringing together philosophers of all nationalities and orientations, it aims to intensify the exchange of ideas. To facilitate information, documentation and communication. To add the habit of critical thinking to the existing positive knowledge. To promote together the rights of reason and the ideal of tolerance. To support the mutual opening of cultures, mentalities, and traditions. To encourage the dialogue between philosophy and art, science, or technology. To propose and to develop international research programs. To organize recurring congresses. To help plan, edit, translate and distribute individual or collective original monographies, bibliographical analyses, regular newsletters, documents adopted during congresses, annotated and commented texts or synthetic volumes.
