The Science-Art Centre
is dedicated to initiating a
21st Century Renaissance


through the reintroduction of the classical Greek philosophy of science for ethical ends. The Centre views the re-unification of the arts and sciences as a solution to the destructive world-view that dominates all contemporary science and technology. Humanity's obsession with materialistic science and technology is leading to the ultimate destruction of our environment and needs to be balanced by the development of a humanitarian science and technology, based on newly emerging life sciences.
