Publisher Information


The Institute for the Study of Human Knowledge (ISHK) is an educational institution dedicated to bringing important research on human nature to the general public. ISHK takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the questions of who we are, where we came from, and what we might become. ISHK programs highlight contributions from contemporary psychology, education, anthropology, medicine, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, and ecology as well as from traditional systems of knowledge and learning with ancient roots. ISHK directors and collaborators have included many leading thinkers of our time and pioneers in their fields: Doris Lessing, Jonas Salk, Robert Ornstein, Idries Shah, Rene Dubos, Paul Ehrlich, James Burke, Edward T. Hall, Hans Selye, William Dement, Philip Zimbardo, and many others. For more than 30 years, ISHK's publishing, book distribution, and educational programs have been reaching thousands of professional and lay persons, contributing to important shifts in public attitudes and policies. Aided by ISHK programs, the role of the mind in health is now an integral part of medical education and health care. Many educators and public policy makers now recognize the need to train more flexible ways of thinking and responding if mankind is to adapt successfully to the challenges of the modern world. In the aftermath of tragedies such as Columbine, educators and child psychologists emphasize that such training needs to be part of early education. ISHK is now focusing on publishing and educational programs for teachers and children at the elementary and middle school levels. ISHK was incorporated in 1969 as a 501c(3) charitable educational organization.

Specifically interested in books with these subjects or themes: childrens literacy (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency development, and reading comprehension)
