Sir Winston Churchill

1874–1965, English

Prime minister. He loved excitement, adventure, and fame, as described in his remarkable memoir of his youth, A Roving Commission. Early political success followed, then crushing reversals. In 1940, however, he thwarted any idea of reaching a deal with Hitler, led Britain as it stood alone against the Nazis, and thus saved the world from barbarism.

Axios Institute is dedicated to the study of human values, both the valuations that we make and the ways that we go about making them.

In addition to the study of values, our field includes what is commonly referred to as ethics, moral philosophy, and philosophy of life.

We are an independent research institute, and are not affiliated with, nor do we propound or express the views of, any particular religion, philosophy, or organized system of thought. On the contrary, our aim is to study a great variety of approaches, and to do so as objectively as possible.

The mission of Axios Press, the publishing division of Axios Institute, is to publish books that provide readers with a great variety of approaches to the study of human choices and values.
