“Just as, when perfected, a human is the best of animals, so also when separated from law and justice, he is the worst of all”

We are a Spanish think tank created in 2020 in order to:

Catalyze private virtue and place it at the service of the public sphere to combat the risks that threaten our democracy in the digital era.

The name “ethosfera” reflects our critical thinking approach based on the classical and liberal humanistic values that will promote in the digital public sphere.

Our vision is:

Well-grounded institutional and democratic change via a civil society, defined by excellence, transformative ambition, strong moralcommitment and capacity to influence.

Our mission is to create:

A new space for research, training and political influence, independent from ideologies and private interests, and a method based on ethics and critical innovation to manage institutional and democratic risks in the digital environment

Humanist, Critical, Integrative, Transideological, Transgenerational, Multidisciplinary, Transformative… Ethosfera is:

An intellectual laboratory for men and women loyal to the principles of liberal humanism.

A critical view and a transformative mission that brings together the best-informed and more responsible citizens with a strong commitment to public virtue.

A general public skilled at deliberating critically in the public sphere.

We develop our research in collaboration with the Fundación de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, which acts as an academic partner and we organize our public activities with the support of our institutional partner, the Círculo de Bellas Artes.
