The Fundación coordinates much of the Zubiri work done today.

2. Seminário Missionário Arquidiocesano "Redemptoris Mater", Brasília, Brazil.

Tour the Seminary!

This seminary bases its entire curriculum on Zubiri’s thought. It stresses orthodoxy and prepares priests to be sent wherever in the world the Catholic Church needs them. Seminarians study systematic philosophy for two years along the lines of Zubiri’s philosophy, "the only one capable…of confronting in a radical way modernism and post-modernism." The course of study includes philosophy of intellection, metaphysics, philosophy of the world, philosophy of man, moral philosophy, philosophy of religion, and theological philosophy. The Xavier Zubiri Foundation of North America is currently collaborating with the Seminário in its work.

The recent economic crisis in Brazil has caused some problems for the Seminary. Contributions to further the extremely important work of the Seminary are urgently needed. If you wish to make a contribution to the Seminary, please contact the Foundation for information on how to do this. Thank you!

4. International Academy of Philosophy, Liechtenstein

This institution, which provides graduate education in philosophy, is in the tradition of phenomenological realism, but welcomes doctoral work on Zubiri. It is staffed by a fine permanent faculty and well-known visiting professors. It is relatively small, which makes for very good student/professor contact. Under the leadership of its Rector, Dr. Josef Seifert, it is an excellent choice for graduate study. For up-to-date information on the Academy and its curriculum, visit its web site.
