Interview with Anthony Wall, Founder & President of Noesis

Tony Wall is the founder and president of Noēsis, a non-profit that’s dedicated to human education and the elimination of perpetual conflict. Wall, who comes from a family of nine, spent his early years at William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia. He moved to Chicago to attend Lake Forest College and credits his Liberal Arts education as the catalyst for his interest in existential philosophy. He spent most of his career in the financial services industry but continually found himself drawn back to the study of humankind. In 2019, Wall established Noēsis and created a series of educational videos to explain his concept of the human injury and how primitive instincts drive today’s human interactions.

About Noēsis: The mission of Noesis is to free humanity from the churn of perpetual conflict by defining the drivers of conflict that are rooted in history. Noēsis has taken the lead in tracing, identifying, and describing the ancient and unresolved motivators of conflict. These relics have combined to either undermine or destroy previous human cultures. An emotionally exhausted human species must fully understand the mechanisms of repetitive human failure.
