In Reason We Trust



“Humanism” ~ an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems.

Currently reading Creating Change Through Humanism in anticipation of our first upcoming lecture on November 20th. I find myself resisting the urge to quote almost every aspect of the book. Roy Speckhardt provides a much more detailed explanation of what Humanism represents than what the lexical definition above denotes. Humanism emphasizes critical thinking and compassion and using those values to do the most good for the many.
