What is Applied Social Theory?

Applied Social Theory is an emergent field of study in which social theory and social phenomena are explored, examined, and analyzed in the context of relevant systemic, societal, and social applications.

In other words, Applied Social Theory is all about putting theory into practice. And that’s what we do.

We study people, systems, society, and social issues in order to INNOVATE and INSPIRE positive social change.

It’s difficult to thrive when you’re struggling to survive. And for most people in the world, life is just that— a struggle to survive or to just get by. And it doesn’t need to be this way. At the Libertas Institute, we see the world the way it is, but we also see the way it could be. And this is our vision:

We see a world in which all men and women are free to pursue truth, peace, and purpose. A world in which self-interest finds balance with the interests of all. A world in which the institutions we too often serve, serve us ahead of themselves. A world in which all people are cared for and feel safe—freed from the need to survive, to pursue what is needed to thrive. A world in which all human needs are met and individual potential is realized. And a world in which our collective potential is then, self-actualized.

And we are determined to imagine, design, and build this future for the world— one project at a time.
