Exploring what we don't know about what we know
There are many deep questions which not only lack good answers, but for which we have very little idea how to go about investigating them in a way that leads to persuasive conclusions. Do we have free will? Do we have a moral responsibility towards the natural world? Could computers become conscious? Does what we do ultimately matter?
Foundational research is impeded by a lack of variety of terms to capture all the relevant conceptual nuances, and a lack of clarity and consistency in the terms used to refer to fundamental concepts across disciplines.
We are developing systemic frameworks for discovering and refining foundational concepts, principles and research methodologies, and also applying these frameworks to pursue fundamental research.
We draw on recent advances in Systemology to explore and leverage the systemic interdependencies within and between collections of concepts, principles, methods and theories, in the context of deep questions.
Answers to deep questions have transdisciplinary significance, so our research teams bring together people with knowledge, skills and ideas from a wide range of disciplines, from across academia and industry.
