The Squire Family Foundation was established in 2007 by Gary Squire, a Washington DC attorney and businessman. Gary created the Foundation, in part, as a tribute to his undergraduate and graduate school philosophy professors who introduced him to a discipline he’d never encountered until college, and who helped him appreciate how a philosophical perspective could enhance his life, both personally and professionally.
Who We Are
Founder and Principal Officer
The goal of the Foundation is to inculcate philosophic habits of mind in all students, whether they become philosophers or choose other professions: to nurture systematic reflection and critical thinking; to encourage them to question assumptions and sharpen their ability to detect logical fallacies; and to foster an appreciation for complexity and diversity of opinion.
