The John Templeton Foundation serves as a philanthropic catalyst for discoveries of relevance to Big Questions that have animated human thought across times and cultures, about fundamental realities and how we might live well in light of those realities. We support research in disciplines ranging from fundamental physics, astronomy, evolutionary biology, and genetics, to psychology, sociology, philosophy, and theology. We encourage open-minded and rigorous intellectual engagement between scientists, philosophers, and theologians, as well as between scholars, public intellectuals, journalists, and the general public.
