“Plato is dear to me, but dearer still is truth.” — Aristotle, 384 - 322 B.C.
We are committed to seeking the truth, wherever it may lead.
Many universities have abandoned the search for truth and self-knowledge. Contradistinctively, Ralston College calls others to join the quest, rather than indoctrinating them into cynical dismissal, division, and despair. This quest for truth is the route out of the meaning crisis and to a free and flourishing human culture. Sincerely seeking the truth engages our highest faculties—and describes our method of approaching both each other and the works of art and intellect from the past. We champion free inquiry and the shared pursuit of knowledge in defiance and defence against nihilism and the assumptions of cancel culture.
“Truth is the antidote to suffering.”
Jordan Peterson, Visitor
