Hello RSHI members and friends,

For those who don’t know, Robert S. Hartman, Ph.D. (1910-1973) was a philosopher, mathematician, professor, and consultant. He is best known for developing the science of formal axiology and the Hartman Value Profile.

Hartman had a big vision. He said:

"Just as today’s mathematics is the language of natural science, Axiology will then be the language of value science. The categories of Axiology can be applied to anything; anything from the lowest to the highest, and can be valued in all 3 processes, systemically, intrinsically, and intrinsically. We must let it be known that we have the opportunity to live in 3 worlds: the systemic world of rules, the social world of the senses, and the moral or spiritual world of our inner selves, therein to live balanced, meaningful lives."

Hartman believed that there could be Value Vision Clinics. Individuals would visit these clinics to get their values measured. This vision is a reality and it is growing. People from all over the world are using value science. I personally see it in corporations, churches, universities, and books. All helping people understand how they think and make decisions.

Hartman’s work has been the Institute’s work, since 1976. Our vision is to Change the World for Better. Our mission is to: develop, apply and make famous Formal Axiology and Hartman’s legacy.

Our NEW value statement is:

In all our endeavors we seek opportunities to build trust with one another. We focus on making make good decisions by using all three value dimensions. Intrinsic (people), Extrinsic (tasks) and Systemic (strategy). We also place people first. (I>E>S).

We continue this legacy today with our newly finalized 2021 – 2022 RSHI Top Priorities and Actions. Read them all here.

We will keep you updated on the progress, and we’ll be reaching out to you to get you involved.
Let’s further Dr. Hartman’s beautiful vision and change the world for the better, together!

Join us for the next Quarterly Axiology Seminar!

The Basics of Axiological Theory Presented by Scholar and Professor Rem B. Edwards, Ph.D.

Take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to meet, interact with, and learn from one of Hartman's own colleagues, who is here to share his knowledge! This Quarterly Seminar should be of special interest to Consultants using the Hartman Value Profile (HVP).

  • Learn the meaning of "good," and gain a deeper understanding of three key components in Hartmanian Axiology--systemic, extrinsic, and intrinsic values, and how they make up the HVP.
  • Learn how to become better judges of what we value, how we value, how to identify the "good-making components" of values, how to combine values, and how to get our value priorities straight.
  • Expand your ability, if a consultant, to talk to your clients about all such things and thus help them with their own value strengths and weaknesses, as well as with values in their businesses.
  • Take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to meet, interact with, and learn from one of Hartman's own colleagues, who is still here to share his knowledge.
