The Philosophical Research Society is a nonprofit organization founded in 1934 for the purpose of providing thoughtful persons rare access to the depth and breadth of the world's wisdom literature. The Society is entirely free from doctrinal, political, or ecclesiastical control and therefore provides a learning environment sheltered from any interest intending to coerce or convert.
The goal of this institution is to enable the individual to develop a mature philosophy of life in association with a diverse and stimulating community of others, each dedicated to understanding and appreciating their unique possibilities in the unfolding universal pattern.
The current president of PRS is Obadiah S. Harris, Ph.D. who, throughout his career, has combined his skills as a community educator and administrator with study of the world's wisdom traditions. Since 1993, he has found a home for these experiences and abilities as President of the Philosophical Research Society. Dr. Harris received his Ph.D. in Education from the University of Michigan as a Stewart Mott Foundation Fellow. His work in community education includes service as Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Community Education at New Mexico State University, and as Associate Professor and Director of the Regional Center for Community Education at Arizona State University. Dr. Harris's study and practice of the great Eastern and Western traditions has helped shape and direct his life.
