Greetings ,

Once again let me say, “Let’s all get together!”

I mean at our Annual Conference September 22nd, October 13th, and November 10th.

The way our Conference Chair Suzie Price set up the conference with her team is a great chance to meet the challenge of these changing times. And it invokes the energy of Hartman’s thinking to bring a fantastic future into the present.

We have wonderful speakers, including several who were actually friends and students of Robert Hartman. They will help you really get a feel for the man he was. In fact you will experience the gift of Using Good Judgment, Doing Good Things, and Letting Love Lead throughout the conference.

If you’re a member, come and get to know the other members. If you’re not, still come and get to know the others. They are great people. Some are business owners, some are consultants, some are practitioners of assessment sources. All feel captured enough by what Hartman has started, to dive into the results and move them forward. For their own benefit, yes, but also for the benefit of others.

And who knows, maybe you'll then want to join. (It will reduce your conference fee, for one thing.)

Many of these wonderful members are interested in helping the vision and mission inspired by Hartman’s thinking to go forward. Moreover, some have expressed a willingness to work with the Institute on the board. They know the board is committed to make the world a better place by developing and spreading the thinking of this man.

So look forward to learning more about Hartman, about others who share his spirit, and others who help our strange new world be a better one. We hope we see you at the conference. And hope you dare us to invite you to see how to deepen yourself, your work, and your world. For that’s what we want to do!

We are deeply excited to announce that submissions are closed for 2020 for the Journal of Formal Axiology: Theory and Practice.

In the coming months, we will be compiling these submitted works for publication and look forward to sharing Volume 13 of the journal with you soon.

While submissions for 2020 are closed, we are taking submissions for 2021. Guidelines for submission, as stated in the front pages of the Journal, are:

  • This journal is published once a year by the Robert S. Hartman Institute. All articles must have an obvious connection with the formal axiology or value theory of Robert S. Hartman and its applications. Articles may be critical, constructive, creative, theoretical, or applied. None dealing with axiology, in general, will be considered. Articles must advance our understanding of Hartmanian axiology and/or what can be done with it. No manuscripts will be accepted that merely summarize what is already known, or that have been previously published, submitted, or accepted elsewhere.
  • MANUSCRIPTS should be submitted as e-mail attachments to Cliff Hurst at: [email protected] They should be in MS Word format, 12 point type. Articles will be subject to blind review, so the name of and contact information for the author(s) should appear only on the title page, which will be deleted by the Editor before sending the article on to members of our Editorial Advisory Board or to other reviewers for their blind assessment of its worthiness for publication.

Also, remember that one of your RSHI Membership Benefits is access to all Journals, located in the Members Only Area. (If you are not a member yet, join here.)
