Council for Research in Values and Philosophy (RVP) – Invitation to activities 2017-2018

The purpose of the Council for Research in Values and Philosophy (RVP) is to identify areas related to values and social life which are in need of research, to bring together the professional competencies in philosophy and related human sciences needed for this research, and to publish the resulting studies. It does this through local research teams in all parts of the globe, which are interrelated through regional conferences and annual 5-10 week seminars. These respond to the new awareness of the cultural grounds of human life and the newly global character of their interaction.

The Council grew out of a series of international philosophical conferences in India, Jerusalem, Kenya, New York and Bogota beginning in the 1970s. It has promoted team research on cultural heritage and contemporary change resulting in the publication and distribution of over 300 volumes.

The Council is constituted of prominent philosophers and social scientists from the many countries across the world. It was formally organized and incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1983 with 501 C3 status where it directs the Center for the Study of Culture and Values.
