Romantic Science Foundations Program
This program consists of the three (3) Foundational Level studies, each containing various course units that may be taken individually on an audit basis or more comprehensively for certification or for the attainment of a diploma (general or honours). This page provides the general scope of each level. You can go to Course Curriculum - Foundations for more detailed information as to specific courses within each level.
In this program, you will gain an understanding of the grand sweep of Western history, philosophy and science, as well as arts and literature, all through the organizing idea of Romantic Science.
Your understanding of the underlying foundations of Western culture will give greater meaning to the unfolding events of our time, and provide you with the necessary critical tools to make sense of them for you and your path in life.

What is Man? This question has bedeviled and tantalized man since philosophy and science began.
Man is more than a machine, more than the outer material form. Man is a living, dynamic, and also romantic being governed and guided by living powers, forces and energies, the interaction of which at varying levels and systems makes us who and what we are. This level gives you the foundational laws, concepts and principles of a living (romantic) approach to nature, culture and the supersensible realm.
