Project Reason: spreading science & secular values #LegaNerd
di
Laido Laido

Project Reason is a nonprofit foundation devoted to spreading scientific knowledge and secular values in society.
Drawing on the talents of the most prominent and creative thinkers across a wide range of disciplines, Project Reason seeks to encourage critical thinking and wise public policy through a variety of interrelated projects.

The foundation will convene conferences, produce films, sponsor scientific studies and opinion polls, publish original research, award grants to other charitable organizations, and offer material support to religious dissidents and public intellectuals — all with the purpose of eroding the influence of dogmatism, superstition, and bigotry in our world.

While the foundation is devoted to fostering critical thinking generally, we believe that religious ideas require a special focus.
Both science and the arts are built upon cultures of vigorous self-criticism; religious discourse is not. As a result, religious dogmatism still reigns unchallenged in almost every society on earth—dividing humanity from itself, inflaming conflict, preventing wise public policy, and diverting scarce resources. One of the primary goals of Project Reason is to change this increasingly unhealthy status quo.

Un interessante ed ambizioso progetto che punta ad incoraggiare il pensiero critico e la diffusione della conoscenza.
Questa organizzazione supporta la ricerca scentifica e le associazioni laiche (anche in medio-oriente).
