We seek to develop knowledge and build society while maintaining awareness of the idea, "Just as I am an individual member of a greater society, we humans are a part of Nature."
Research gives rise to a worldview. Since the time of Galileo more than 300 years ago, society has adopted a fundamentally mechanistic basis and human technology has become further removed from the natural world. But research in recent years has revealed that all of nature (universe-earth-life) involves creation, giving rise to a biological worldview. In this conception, we humans use our brains, our hands, our capacity for language to build societies and live as humans. We exist both as members of one species of a diverse many carrying the heritage of development, evolution and ecology, and as human individuals, bearing our lives, history, and society. BRH is dedicated to creating knowledge from a worldview expressed as "I am a human being," and contributing thereby to building a better society.
