Section for Social Sciences
The Section for Social Sciences is concerned with human relationships in the three spheres of social life: economic, legal, and cultural/spiritual. Depending on the sphere, different fundamental questions arise: How are the basic needs of the world's population to be met? What responsibility does a good citizen bear for the common good? What does a human being need from the world in order to reach his or her potential? With such questions in mind, the Section conducts research, pursuing insight and creative forms in a variety of areas including: family culture, biography work, conflict resolution/peace studies, addiction, economics questions, and the science, practice, and politics of law.
