The International Institute for Field-Being (IIFB) is a non-profit research oriented international educational association of scholars, professionals, organizations and interested individuals in any field or discipline who study and promote the Field-Being and non-substantialistic modes of thought. Founded in 1996 by Dr. Lik Kuen Tong (1935-2012), the IIFB has since its inception sponsored nine international symposia in addition to many colloquia, workshops, and group sessions in conjunction with the various divisional annual meetings of the American Philosophical Association and the American Academy of Religion. Dr. Laura Weed, Professor of Philosophy at The College of Saint Rose, serves as President of the IIFB.
The IIFB has had as its official organ an online journal The International Journal for Field-Being as well as chapter affiliates in China, Europe, Russia, and the U.S.A. forming a Global Field Being Network. While prominently interdisciplinary and cross-cultural in its research orientations, the IIFB has from the very beginning aspired not only to the articulation of a new conceptuality for the New Millennium and the Global Age but also to the concretization of Field-Being philosophy in the live-world of practical affairs an effort intended both to address the perennial needs of humanity and to throw significant light on the problematicity and predicaments of the contemporary global situation.
There is no fee to become a member of the International Institute for Field Being.
