CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF

FIRST PRINCIPLES

The Zephyr Institute’s Center for the Study of First Principles provides a forum for scholars, students and professionals to engage life's deepest and most enduring questions. From our Flourishing Society gatherings to our high school philosophy camps, First Principles programs examine the fundamental principles upon which significant moral, political and metaphysical theories are based.

“Now the intellect apprehends primarily being itself; secondly, it apprehends that it understands being; and thirdly, it apprehends that it desires being. Hence the idea of being is first, that of truth second, and the idea of good third” ~Aquinas
