Princeton Research Forum
Princeton Research Forum is a community of independent scholars in the Princeton area and beyond. It was founded in 1980 by a group of scholars who were pursuing their own research outside of the academy. Their aim was to facilitate access to libraries and funding for independent researchers and to provide a forum for collegiality among the group’s membership. Since those early days, much has improved for independent scholars, in part due to the efforts of PRF founding members and to those of the National Coalition of Independent Scholars (, with which PRF is affiliated.

Today, Princeton Research Forum (PRF) offers a diverse group of men and women scholars the opportunity to share their research interests, expertise, and creative endeavors in a supportive environment with other independent scholars. In addition to meeting monthly during the academic year, PRF members participate in ongoing study groups in the humanities, science/history of science, and poetry. Members gather for an annual general meeting and pot-luck dinner in the summer and a festive wine-and-cheese party in the fall.

The trouble with Winston Churchill is that he was a hero partly because he was such a daft racist | Mark Steel
Heroes are complex: it will probably turn out one day that Jesus had a gambling habit, and blew the widow’s mite on the 4.15 chariot race from Nazareth.

Who does Donald Tusk think he is? We’ve always been so civil with these ‘EU dirty rats’ | The Independent
Telling EU leaders they’re like Hitler is exactly the sort of skilled diplomacy that has made these Brexit negotiations pass off so smoothly

Jeremy Hardy was a glorious friend – and a mischievous comedy delight | Mark Steel
Three days ago, he contemplated appearing at this year’s Glastonbury Festival: ‘I could do it’, he said, ‘but I’d be like Stephen Hawking, only not as funny’.

Britain must not let Brexit distract us from being horrible to two boys who escaped the Taliban | Mark Steel
You can understand the Home Office playing hardball. Boys often run away across continents and almost suffocate, pretending terrifying regimes have taken control of their house.

Bahá'í Reference Library - The Promulgation of Universal Peace, Pages 289-296
God has given man the eye of investigation by which he may see and recognize truth. He has endowed man with ears that he may hear the message of reality and conferred upon him the gift of reason by which he may discover things for himself. This is his endowment and equipment for the investigation of reality. Man is not intended to see through the eyes of another, hear through another’s ears nor comprehend with another’s brain. Each human creature has individual endowment, power and responsibility in the creative plan of God. Therefore, depend upon your own reason and judgment and adhere to the outcome of your own investigation; otherwise, you will be utterly submerged in the sea of ignorance and deprived of all the bounties of God. Turn to God, supplicate humbly at His threshold, seeking assistance and confirmation, that God may rend asunder the veils that obscure your vision. Then will your eyes be filled with illumination, face to face you will behold the reality of God and your heart become completely purified from the dross of ignorance, reflecting the glories and bounties of the Kingdom.

We'll stop admiring May's resilience when we're all fighting over carcass scraps from London Zoo | Mark Steel
This is sparkly British determination to see the good in someone. But Theresa May breaks records for scales of disaster every day and grins as if everything’s turned out fine.
