Established in 2010, the Berggruen Institute works across cultures, disciplines, and political boundaries, engaging great thinkers to develop and promote long-term answers to the biggest challenges of the twenty-first century.
Each year, the institute offers the Berggruen Prize, a $1 million award that recognizes thinkers whose ideas are of broad significance for shaping human self-understanding and the advancement of humanity.
While modernity has produced a dramatic expansion of knowledge, it has not delivered a commensurate increase in our understanding of our shared human condition. The Berggruen Institute believes that philosophy, broadly understood as the disciplined intellectual pursuit of wisdom, has a key role to play in making our complex reality more comprehensible and to prepare us to make wiser choices about our future.
