Discovering Templeton

The John Templeton Foundation serves as a philanthropic catalyst for discoveries relating to the questions of human purpose and ultimate reality. They support research on subjects ranging from complexity, evolution, and infinity to creativity, forgiveness and free will. They also encourage civil, informed dialogue among scientists, philosophers, and theologians and between such experts and the public at large, for the purposes of definitional clarity and new insights.

Their vision is derived from the late Sir John Templeton’s optimism about the possibility of acquiring “new spiritual information” and from his commitment to rigorous scientific research and related scholarship. The Foundation’s motto, “How little we know, how eager to learn,” exemplifies their support for open-minded inquiry and our hope for advancing human progress through breakthrough discoveries.
Finally, they seek high-potential projects likely to generate a significant return on investment, in the sense of impact relative to the resources invested. This “return” belongs to the world, in the form of new discoveries and breakthroughs, new ways of looking at old problems.
