I found that I was fitted for nothing so well as for the study of Truth . . . with desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set in order . . . being a man that neither affects what is new nor admires what is old, and that hates every kind of imposture.

~ Francis Bacon (1605)

OUR MISSION

intellectual perseverance, intellectual integrity, and
intellectual responsibility.
