Freemasonry, which is one of the most rooted traditions in human history, creates a very comprehensive field of knowledge with its accumulation over the centuries. Although this field of knowledge has many dimensions, it is possible to express it in three main axes:
- The history of Freemasonry;
- Social impacts of Freemasonry;
- The intellectual foundations of Freemasonry.
With a wide range of topics covered by each of these axes, Freemasonry is in the field of interest of many disciplines ranging from history to sociology, from political science to philosophy. In other words, Freemasonry is an interesting and rich research topic for social sciences. I would also like to note that it is not necessary to be a Freemason to have an intellectual interest in Freemasonry. As a matter of fact, research into Freemasonry is jointly carried out by researchers that are or aren’t Freemasons in various worldwide academic platforms.
Freemasonry is within my academic and intellectual field of interest. I publish the findings of my research through books or papers. I also give talks where I share my knowledge and opinions with Freemasons or the public. I share some of them here, in the hope that they may be of interest and useful.
