Arete has two meanings. The first is a terrain feature description; a sharp, thin ridgeline. The second is a classical Greek term described by the philosopher Aristotle of excellence and virtue in soul, character and performance.
With this new addition to MTI, we hope to bring together resources from the MTI community, meeting on the Arete, to improve each other and ourselves as thought leaders in our respective professions.
As a method to continue the conversation amongst the MTI community, we will begin consolidating articles on a weekly basis to share with you. These will come from across the spectrum of the communities that we focus on … military, mountain, law enforcement, and fire/rescue.
The issues will range from foreign policy to strength and conditioning to economic trends. Nothing is out of bounds.
For the long run, MTI wants to harness the knowledge and intellectual curiosity of our athletes to provide interesting and forward moving conversation.
If you’ve found an article or piece of research which is interesting, thought provoking, and relevant, please send it to us we can share and discuss. If you are conducting your own professional/recreational research, we are also interested in publishing the content. Please ensure you provide proper sources and credit.
