MANTIS INSTITUTE

ABOUT

Purpose: A social science research and advisory practice focused on education development operating in challenging settings serving in the capacity of consultant and community liaison assisting initiatives reducing poverty.

Functions: With the spirit of inquiry, exorcise paradoxes possessing the human condition: perform diagnostic assessments; recommend prescriptions and treatments; provide a prognosis for sustainable objectives; and report findings inclusive of statistics informed by biographical accounts on predicaments that awaken the moral imagination to life as it is.

Serve as an originator of field studies archived in the social psychology collections at the Bodleian Social Science Library of the University of Oxford, and the University of Cambridge Library.

..

Philosophy: The confined logic of modernity, and errors by postmodern deconstructions of its rationales, secularists forgoing the existence of the spiritual, and postmodernists inverting errors as facts censuring its essence, have awakened the equal significance of science and metaphysics in the Postsecular Age.

Focus: Compare and contrast education systems in open and closed societies where the balance of social order is farmed in open meadows in need of cultivation or enclosed walled gardens in need of fertilization.

Where inviolable natural order governs the fields of human affairs, variety in need of education blossoms. Within the enclosed garden where capricious autocracy farms order, among the cocooned are wild flowers to weed-out.
