The Agora Institute supports and produces a broad, interdisciplinary range of research projects united by a shared interest in understanding and promoting civic virtue and the common good. Animated by the fundamental questions of human existence -- What is the purpose of life? How should I live? What do I owe to others? What is a good community? -- they aim at insight into how we might live good, integral lives in community with one another. Further, Agora is convinced that the religious traditions offer something of lasting value in these explorations, without diminishing or challenging the integrity or pluralism of our contemporary polity.
