Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
"Mankind, as we have had more thanPierre Teilhard de Chardin,

The centerpiece of the »Renaissance of Wisdom« project will be the publication of a monograph.
It will be a detailed, well-documented work in full color presenting a comprehensive understanding of all aspects
of wisdom. Through comparative research and synoptical documentation, the insights of the various wisdom
traditions, science, art and music will be brought into a dialogue. In the light of this new and integral view, the
similarity of the concepts will be evident - an all encompassing understanding of nature, of human existence and
of the cosmos. I more information I

The Foundation World Cultural Heritage of the Wisdom Teachings was initiated and founded by 32 Co-Founders
in 2004. Their inspiration to start the foundation is based on their passion to share with the world community a
common point of reference of universally recognized truths, which they see in the everlasting foundations of
human culture, the treasures of wisdom and insight in the classical wisdom teachings, the world religions and
integral sciences. These treasures are of such timeless value that they rank - just as the name of the foundation
says - as a world cultural heritage: world culture as heritage and goal.
The ancient wisdom teachings provide a vast reservoir of meaning and orientation, which is sought-for by many
people in our time. With their holistic understanding of human existence and our position in the universe, the unity
of metaphysical search and scientific research, the unity of spirit and matter, the wisdom teachings are
of inspiring modernity, pointing the way into the future. This can clearly be seen in the remarkable resemblance
of the insights into the structural order of creation found in the traditional wisdom teachings and in the new sciences.
"Wisdom" was one of the most venerated values of the classical philosophical traditions. The excellence of the
human spirit was seen in the wisdom of a liberated human being who had achieved the capacity to transcend the
limitations of the egocentric mind, to perceive with spiritual insight, to make correct judgements and decisions
and to act for the welfare of humanity and the whole of creation through freedom from self interest and with a
sense of responsibility. The highest form of wisdom was seen in the participation in the field of "primordial
Wisdom": "Wisdom is to grasp the principle of reason, which pervades the All with all." Heraklit
"Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?" T.S. Eliot
