What is Sophia? Sophia, the Greek word for wisdom, is a concept that goes back to the time before Socrates and Plato. It encompasses many aspects of the good life, or the idea that to be complete human beings we must value the study of the whole of living or being and we must take care of our bodies. In the Greek notion of wisdom there is no divide between thinking and living, between ideas and physical greatness. In ancient times the Olympic Games had contests for poetry as well as athletic events. The spirit of this idea is what guides The Sophia Group and its companies. Today, when our society rushes ever faster towards an emphasis on immediate gratification and shortcuts to success, The Sophia Group embraces these ancient ideals to build a series of successful companies that do more than earn a profit. Their goal is to stand out as examples of integrity, corporate responsibility, and education.
