The Institution for Authority Research
Dean Gotcher founded The Institution for Authority Research in 1995. Originally, his research (spanning five years, reading over 600 social psychology books, many of which are foundational to earning a PhD in Education, Psychology, and Philosophy today) centered on educational issues, primarily Goals 2000. He began speaking full-time in 1997 (after teaching on the subject in an upper level class at a University). As the years went by the information was expanded to include the workplace, government institutions, and the church. He and his wife Karen travel from coast to coast explaining the dialectic process and practice (praxis). He began giving seminars, explaining the dialectic process and diaprax and its application in our society. For more information on where meetings are being held see the schedule page or for written or taped material see the order form page.
In 2000, the first Diaprax Conference was held in Dallas Texas. Dean invited other speakers to join him. These men researched specific areas where "diaprax" is affecting our culture. Since then, IAR has held conferences in various locations around the country. These conferences provide in greater detail how the Diaprax is being applied in the workplace, the police force, education, government, and the church.
To discuss the possibility of setting up a conference or a meeting in your area, please contact Dean by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to: Dean Gotcher, Box 233, Herndon KS 67739.
