Welcome

The Institute for American Religious and Philosophical Thought (IARPT) is a community of productive scholars with diverse theological and philosophical perspectives. The Institute contributes to the academic study of religion and philosophy through interpretive, critical, and constructive reflections whose principal focus is on distinctively American religious and philosophical thought. It fosters broad discussion of relevant options through its sponsorship of conferences, seminars, workshops, and publications. Prior to June 2012, the organization was known as The Highlands Institute for American Religious and Philosophical Thought.
