Biosophy is a¬†system of self-education and selr-improvement developed by Dr. Fredrick Kettner of New York, and founder of the¬†Biosophical Institute. He defined biosophy (derived from¬†Bios, life; and¬†Sophia, intelligence) as the science and art of living based on the awareness and practice of spiritual values, ethical-social principles and character qualities essential to individual freedom. In his booklet¬†The Need for a Thousand Year Plan¬†(1948) he recognizes the part played by the human mind in building civilization, but says, “Humanity’s next problem is to realize the creativity of the heart of man.”¬†A.G.H.
