We know them as Socrates, Buddha, Confucius, among others.

Have you ever wondered if there is more to life than what the eyes can see? Do you feel like the world is trying to offer you temporary substitutes, that you don't really need? Can we know the Truth? Is there an immortal soul? What makes you YOU? Are Freedom and Justice possible? Can we make the world a better place?

We want to discover the Mystery that is hidden in Life. The philosopher is the lover of wisdom, who asks the BIG questions and seeks to improve himself and society.
