Towards a New Enlightment

Our most recent discussion paper argues: What we need are proposals for sustainable change. What we need is increased involvement of the humanities and their integrative power.

Discussion Paper

The Integrative Power of the Humanities

Out of crises comes the new: flood disasters, drought, heat waves, forest fires and other extreme events are accompanied by great uncertainty - the systemic connection of these crises and the consequences for our future thinking and actions are all too clear. What we need are proposals for sustainable change and new spaces for thinking and action. What we need is increased involvement of the humanities and their integrative power.

Discussion paper

The Case For Exploratory Social Sciences

Should the social sciences only analyse the past and present? Or should they also try to help design the future? THE NEW INSTITUTE aims to support faster and closer connections between social science and the vital changes needed in our society as we respond to climate change, ageing, inequality and a world flooded with powerful new technologies. It is needed in part because our existing academies are not generating an adequate supply of options and designs for the future.
