From 1812 to 1823, in perhaps the highest order intellectual correspondence in all of American history, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson exchanged no fewer than three-hundred letters. Unsurpassed in spirit, content, and style, and spanning philosophy, politics, and religion, their exchange serves as lasting testimony to the importance of written dialogue in civilized society.
Our Mission: Pairagraph is a platform for written dialogue between pairs of notable individuals: in essence, an online meeting place for the world’s most prominent figures across government, industry, academia, religion, and the arts. Our mission is to revive this dualistic and dialectic mode of discourse, which has fallen lately into a state of decay.
Our Fundamental Belief: The web, though partly responsible for the erosion of serious dialogue in society, can be harnessed to usher in its revival, in order that it might flourish once again.
