Alethes Research Network aims to transcend the institutional limitations of the academia, to achieve conceptual coherence among disciplines in line with today’s global world.
Alethes.net gathers resources open to review and discussion, whose conceptual integration begins with biology: the study of life. The presence of moral biases in biology, as it is commonly understood, isolates the discipline and makes it less biological. Here we aim to demonstrate that biology should be understood broadly, as a field which provides the kind of answers that have been traditionally expected from philosophy.
The original meaning and essence of truth in Ancient Greece was disclosure, unconcealment, the bringing of what was previously hidden into the open. This meaning is different from the common interpretation of the term as correctness or certainty, which is inevitably burdened by moral, tribalistic assumptions that go deep into our nature. This is the central meaning of our project, one that spans the entire production of knowledge but focuses on humanity.
Alethes Research Network has its headquarters in the university town of Jyväskylä.
