Konrad Lorenz Institute For Evolution and Cognition Research

The Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research (KLI) is an international center for advanced studies in theoretical biology. It supports the articulation, analysis, and integration of biological theories and the exploration of their wider scientific and cultural significance. The institute is located in Altenberg, near Vienna, Austria, in the family mansion of the Nobel Laureate Konrad Lorenz, whose work laid the foundation for an evolutionary approach to mind and cognition.

The institute provides a stimulating and creative environment for fellows, visiting scholars, students, and external faculty who wish to work on any of the aforementioned topics. Through its lecture and seminar series the KLI also offers a platform for the critical public discussion of current themes in the biosciences.

Founded in 1990, the KLI is funded by a private trust and receives additional support from the Province of Lower Austria. The institute has close ties with many of the higher education institutions in Vienna and Lower Austria as well as with a number of international institutions with similar aims.

    Historians will have to face the fact that natural selection determined the evolution of cultures in the same manner as it did that of species.
    Konrad Lorenz (1903–1989)

    Socratic man believes that all virtue is cognition, and that all that is needed to do what is right is to know what is right. This does not hold for Mosaic man who is informed with the profound experience that cognition is never enough, that the deepest part of him must be seized by the teachings, that for realization to take place his elemental totality must submit to the spirit as clay to the potter.
    Martin Buber (1878–1965)

    Historians will have to face the fact that natural selection determined the evolution of cultures in the same manner as it did that of species.
    Konrad Lorenz (1903–1989)

    The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is “What does a woman want?”
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)

    ... So damn your food and damn your wines,
    Your twisted loaves and twisting vines,
    Your table d’hôte, your à la carte,
    . . . .
    From now on you can keep the lot.
    Take every single thing you’ve got,
    Your land, your wealth, your men, your dames,
    Your dream of independent power,
    And dear old Konrad Adenauer,
    And stick them up your Eiffel Tower.
    Anthony Jay (b. 1930)

    Whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, & to institute new government, laying it’s foundation on such principles & organising it’s powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety & happiness.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
