Vanguard Research Institute
Statement of Purpose
To engage in basic research along lines that seem most likely to lead to the
greatest long-term benefit to humanity. We seek to leverage the research
investment in ways that trigger multiplier effects.
We are currently working in the following fields:
- Pynthantics, the science and art of posing questions. As a science,
it is a branch of semiotics alongside semantics, syntactics, pragmatics, and
hermeneutics. See the Pynthantics
- Constitutionology, the science and technology of constitutional
design. See the Constitution Society
- Nanotechnology, the science and technology of constructing useful
objects atom by atom.
- Arcology, the science and technology of designing and building
self-contained compact cities.
