Dr. Serge Raynaud de la Ferrière tirelessly travels the five continents, visiting 43 countries and giving more than 2500 lectures, establishing his high ideals of Science, Art, Philosophy and Didactics for the birth of a new humanity.


He establishes the headquarters of the International Federation of Scientific Societies (FISS) in Club l’Artistique, a famous art center of the fifties in Nice, France in accordance with his transcendental approach ahead of his time; the union of Science and Art in an epistemology of life, for a greater understanding.

On December 27 1962, Dr. Serge Raynaud de la Ferrière passes away, leaving behind an outline of his Worldwide Institution. His beloved disciple Dr. David Juan Ferriz Olivares continues his legacy in Science in its no-limit sense through the various Foundations inspired in his thought such as: the INVESCIENCIAS Foundation, the ELIC Foundation as well as the Association for the Preservation of Dr. Serge Raynaud de la Ferrière’s Work in Europe (with its headquarters in Nice, France).

The great contributions of these foundations have represented for thousands of people all over America, Europe and other continents, a fundamental change in their lives, ranging from Nutrition, Psychophysical Culture, to the foundations’ advanced approaches, using the four pillars of Knowing, benefitting families, children, the Thinking man, artists, and all of humanity in general. His Thought was maintained and thoroughly explained thanks to his exegete Dr. David Juan Ferriz Olivares, who was highly educated scientifically, academically and spiritually.

He lived in San Francisco, USA, for two years and then arrived to Mexico where he precociously came in contact with the literature and philosophy that would mark for the rest of his life, his musical creativity and his apostleship of thought. His inclination towards scientific research as well began around this age. He attended primary school during the day and in the evenings his father began to take him to his afternoon university classes, introducing him to thinkers such as Antonio Caso, José Vasconcelo and Alfonso Reyes. He was educated in different centers of different nationalities, such as the National School of Mexico, the San Borja French School, the American School and the Hebrew School.


He studied Philosophy and Economics and maintained an interest in applied sciences. He graduated as a Doctor in Philosophy and Letters. It was also in the Open Forum of Mexico where he began to give new dimensions to his oratory skills, giving more than 7000 lectures and courses throughout his life.

The INVESCIENCIAS Foundation was as well founded by Dr. David Juan Ferriz Olivares in many countries of the American Continent as well as within inhospitable areas of South America.
