Sane's mission is to make the pursuit of knowledge accessible to everyone.

The world has changed dramatically in the past years, with Covid just accelerating the already growing demand for access to information and the pursuit of knowledge as a form of individual expression.

The problem is that research, theory, and the general aggregation of ideas is often tucked away behind the walls of institutions, inaccessible to many of us. Whether it's because research papers are long, heavy pdfs hidden deep within university websites. Or because few people have time to read the full works of the thinkers they find fascinating. Or simply because there is no dedicated guide to discovering what one may be interested in the first place. Academia isn't designed with individual readers in mind, and that lack of accessibility is a loss for everyone.

This is why we're building Sane. Our purpose is to bridge this gap and make the ideas and research from the world's greatest thinkers available to all of us. Sane breaks down works from academia and beyond into digestible reading experiences that allow people learn and develop intentional thinking habits in a way that fits the limitations of our busy, modern lives.
