Templeton Press (Templeton Foundation Inc.) was founded in January 1997 as a nonprofit foundation established by Sir John Templeton.
Since its inception, the Press has published over two hundred books in the core publishing areas of The Virtues, Science & the Big Questions, Health & Spirituality, and Individual Freedom & Free Markets. Within these categories, the Press is pursuing several book series that relate the discoveries of cutting edge research to everyday life. These include:
- Foundational Questions in Science, which was developed as part of a co-publishing alliance with Yale University Press. Each book is written by a prominent researcher and is designed to examine philosophical assumptions undergirding research on questions of importance. Books include Does Altruism Exist?: Culture Genes, and the Welfare of Others and Void: The Strange Physics of Nothing.
- The Spirituality and Mental Health Series, which is designed to educate both clinical practitioners and religious professionals about the valuable role spirituality can play in mental health. Books include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Christians with Depression: A Practical Tool-Based Primer and Helping Groups Heal: Leading Small Groups in the Process of Transformation.
- The New Threats to Freedom Series, which consists of small books written by noted policy experts on critical topics such as government entitlements, the explosion of working aged males permanently out of the labor force, and the dire economic prospects for millennials. Books include A Nation of Takers: America’s Entitlement Epidemic; Bring Back the Bureaucrats: Why More Federal Workers Will Lead to Better (And Smaller!) Government; and Men without Work: America’s Invisible Crisis.
In addition to book series, Templeton Press creates a host of initiatives to engage its audience, from interactive websites to scholarship campaigns. Regardless of the category, the goal of Templeton Press is to be the driving force behind positive, enduring, and tangible cultural change.
