Virtuology Academy is affiliated with the Virtuology Institute, which does all the research and development for the subjects taught at the Academy, ensuring that it reflects political, social, economic, ecological and technological developments.
Ensuring a world class program, we effectively collaborate with a variety of L&D professionals in the innovation of Academy processes, aligning teams around best practices in development and delivery.
Virtuology Academy is the world’s No.1 provider of courses and books on the topic of virtues. HQ is in Düsseldorf, Germany.
We are a non-profit organization funded by founders, advocacy groups, and corporations, and derive revenue from courses. We are non-partisan in purpose, not partial to any specific party, person, etc.
The mission of Virtuology Academy is to enable everyone to harness the power of their inborn virtues, to train qualified virtuologues, and to publish empirical research that tests, extends, or builds virtuology theory and contributes to virtue-driven practice. All empirical methods including, but not limited to, qualitative, quantitative, field, laboratory, meta-analytic, and mixed methods are welcome. Our courses and publications contain the researches that make strong empirical, theoretical and practical contributions to a virtue-driven life-style. Creators strive to produce original, insightful, interesting, important, and theoretically bold research that demonstrates a significant “value-added” contribution to the field’s understanding of virtues.
Education comes from the two Latin words: educare and educere.
Educare means to train or to mould, whereas educere means to educe or draw out.
So, it is meant to be a push-and-pull dynamic. However, most of education today bases itself on the molding or pushing part, neglecting the extracting or pulling one, which is equally important.
We are not taught to think for ourselves but rather to think like other people. We all come into this world with innate knowledge, talents, and virtues, but educational systems treat us as a tabula rasa or a blank slate that needs to be filled with data. Virtuology, on the other hand, is designed to educe (draw out) that which lies within each person, their dormant qualities, their superpowers (virtues), rather than treat them as a tabula rasa or a blank slate that needs to be filled with data.
Virtuology has great value not because it is academically pleasing but because it embodies the idea that virtues are the key to excellence, lasting success, growth and progress. That idea in itself is the carrier of great value, which in the hands of the right network (that has an appreciation for virtues) can do wonders.

At the academy, the power of the virtues is conveyed by the group experience that students “get by osmosis” instead of by studying.
Allegorically, osmosis is an apparently effortless, gradual absorption of ideas, feelings, attitudes, etc.; often unconscious process of assimilation; picking up knowledge accidentally or spontaneously, without actually seeking that particular knowledge.
An example of osmosis: learning a foreign language by osmosis is learning while residing in the foreign country, as opposed to studying it.
Similarly, virtues grow easier through the process of osmosis rather than through studying or reasoning or intellectualization. Therefore, a person with the lower concentration of virtues will effortlessly, gradually, unconsciously become virtuous when subjected to the influence of the people and other agents, such as our Academy programme, with higher concentration of virtues.
Osmosis happens when you place two mixtures of different concentration next to each other. Osmosis is the tendency of a solvent to pass through a semipermeable membrane into a solution of higher concentration. It is the movement from lower concentration to higher concentration. An example of osmosis is when red blood cells, which have a high concentration of protein and salt, are placed in a lower concentration fluid like water, the water will rush into the red blood cells. Perhaps an even better example of osmosis is when you place a dehydrated lettuce in a bowl with water, lettuce will not dilute (water will not take the quality of lettuce), but the water will get into the salad and a small dried lettuce will grow larger.
