Wisdom welcomes correspondence in English, French or

for publication should be in English. If your material is intended as part of the enhanced
edition of a book, please edit it in such a way that it could be easily
inserted in the book without many alterations being necessary. For efficiency, please try to be as
straight to the subject
and explicit as you can. At the
beginning of each topic that you address, please indicate by a title
which chapter in the book or which other aspect you are referring to.
For example, for Terra City book you can mention: A PROBLEM, A MODEL, THE
DATA, THE GOAL, THE WAY, TERRA CITY, HUMAN WISDOM, SYNERGETIC GROUPS,
or in general - PROPOSED SUBJECT FOR A NEW BOOK, PROPOSED PRODUCT, PROPOSED PROJECT,
suggest that all materials intended for publication

How does Human Wisdom deal with copyright and possible copyright
Human Wisdom can only count on everyone’s honesty and integrity.
When a material is received from someone for possible publication,
Human Wisdom cannot and shall not verify the truthfulness of the facts
presented, the possible inspiration from someone else’s work, either
published or not, and the eventual copyright violation or any other
undesired aspect. The legality of all these issues remains the entire
responsibility of the sender of the material.
what criteria does Human Wisdom select the materials for publication?
Wisdom assures everyone that the selection of materials for
publication is done only in the spirit of promoting values
pertinent to Human Wisdom principles and objectives presented in this
web site. Since we can always make a mistake in our judgment or
overlook a material, if you ever see that your contribution has not
been incorporated in the expected Human Wisdom publication and you
consider that it should have been, please send us a note. This way you
will help Human Wisdom to keep a straight course in its activity, for
which we thank you in advance.
there anything in “fine printing” that someone who wants to send a
material to Human Wisdom should be aware of?
A4. Human Wisdom has no “fine printing” provisions. Actually, there is something very important that should be written in bold printing:
IMPORTANT: In order to avoid any false expectations and
misunderstandings please do not send any material to
Human Wisdom before reading, clearly
understanding and fully and unconditionally accepting the following
When submitting any idea, essay, material of any kind, nature, size and importance to Human Wisdom, the sender of the material must be aware that s/he is actually submitting an open letter to the entire world, and hence the sender automatically accepts the possible loss of any and all rights to that material, including but not limited to the copyright for that material and any other material that might spin off from it.
When submitting a material to Human Wisdom, either copyrighted or not, the sender automatically accepts to grant to Human Wisdom the unconditional and unlimited use of that material and any other material that may spin off from it.
material of any kind (writings, drawings, paintings, sketches, songs
etc.) received at Human Wisdom in any forms (courier, mail, fax,
email, tapes, CDs etc.) is implicitly presumed by Human Wisdom as
offered by the sender for publication, insertion or quotation, without
any written authorization being necessary. The sender gives Human
Wisdom unlimited rights to treat her/his material in the way Human Wisdom
considers appropriate: the material can be published as such in any
form of media, imbedded in a certain context, spun off in various
forms, or simply ignored all together if considered irrelevant or
inappropriate for publication by Human Wisdom, without any explanation
to the sender being necessary.
of a material must acknowledge any reference information incorporated in
her/his material (quotation, summary, or paraphrase) by enclosing it in
quotation marks, and at the end of the material will attach a list of
all Works Cited.
Wisdom cannot and does not assume any responsibility of any nature
towards any author, participant, collaborator or any other person
related or not to Human Wisdom. Therefore when sending a material of
any kind to Human Wisdom, the sender implicitly acknowledges to hold
Human Wisdom harmless of any responsibility whatsoever, anywhere in
the world, now and anytime in the future.
case of a financial reward being distributed by Human Wisdom among the
participants to a book, product or project, each participant shall
unconditionally accept the amount determined by Human Wisdom, without
any right of recourse.
All of the above may sound harsh and unconsidered, but again, please try to also think of the unlimited legal hazard to which Human Wisdom exposes itself. Anyone who considers any of the above provisions as unacceptable, which is an absolutely legitimate opinion, should undoubtedly avoid any cooperation with Human Wisdom. Also, anyone aiming or expecting a certain reward for their material must not send that material to Human Wisdom, since Human Wisdom cannot and does not guaranty any reward to anyone, and the copyright protection for that material might be lost.
