ISS Reports


This section of the ISS web pages is devoted to the provision of reviews, reports and/or summaries of seminars and other activities from the Institute's program. Depending on availability — and the wishes of the speaker — we can sometimes offer the full text of addresses.

The reports are organized by year. Clicking on the year in the side menu will direct the reader to a list of titles and presenters for those seminars from that year for which reports are available. These secondary menus then lead to the actual reports.

In the usual way of web publishing, the copyright of all material on these web pages remains with the original authors, and with the Institute for Spiritual Studies (for commissioned summaries and reviews). Limited quotation from this published material is permitted under "fair usage" conditions, but please contact the original author, or the ISS at iss [at], if you wish to make any other use of this material.
