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 accessible 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.

"If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is law and no amount of pretending will alter that reality."
Socrates
Greek Philosopher
