The Axiological Perspective is a value-based look at some of the aspects of contemporary life, as both philosophical analysis, social theory and ethical philosophy on one hand, and political, social and cultural commentary on the other.
In contrast to the often polarised views of human life and strategies for action, a value-based perspective offers not only a platform for exploring areas of commonality among divergent opinions, but sometimes a very different alternative to entrenched standpoints.
On this site I will be writing about some of my personal interests, such as, the place of values in current and future social scenarios, human nature and culture, and academic interests including the philosophy of value and institutional theory.
I am happy to consider submissions from other authors on these and related topics, as long as they conform to the required standards of scholarship and tone.
I hope that this site proves of interest and will stimulate discussion.
