In 1976 he organized the Center for New Thinking, a forum for the presentation of new ideas in the arts, sciences and philosophy.

Wine counsels realism and the discarding of illusions as necessary for staying sane, dignity and courage as essential to human happiness, and the importance of ethics derived from human experience in a universe indifferent to human values and concerns.
Realistic living, Wine concludes, is the courage to acknowledge truth even when painful, the courage to strive for happiness even when it is unlikely, the courage to face uncertainty, the courage to improve the world even in the face of failure, the courage to stay sane in a crazy world.
