Edward Said and Jacques Derrida: Reconstellating Humanism and the Global Hybrid

This cancer eats away at the principles of Christianity, traditional public education, and general morality. It provides the foundation for a variety of popular anti-biblical philosophies. At the center of this fatal evolutionary belief is the teaching that there is no God or personal Creator (atheism), and that humans are the apex of all reality The Senses: Classic and Contemporary Philosophical Perspectives (Philosophy of Mind Series). In the following sections we shall try to give some account of this Renaissance movement in its earlier stages and as it manifested itself in Italy A Treatise of Human Nature (Oxford Philosophical Texts). The Oxford English Dictionary records the use of the word "humanism" by an English clergyman in 1812 to indicate those who believe in the "mere humanity" (as opposed to the divine nature) of Christ, i.e., Unitarians and Deists. [17] In this polarised atmosphere, in which established ecclesiastical bodies tended to circle the wagons and reflexively oppose political and social reforms like extending the franchise, universal schooling, and the like, liberal reformers and radicals embraced the idea of Humanism as an alternative religion of humanity Robert Grosseteste and the pursuit of Religious and Scientific Learning in the Middle Ages (Studies in the History of Philosophy of Mind).

"If after a full and faithful experiment, it should at last be seen that fidelity to the religious interests of our children forbids a further patronage of the system, we can unite with the Evangelical Christians in the establishment of private schools, in which more full doctrinal religious instruction may be possible." Montessori education dates back to 1907, when Maria Montessori opened the Casa dei Bambini, or Children’s House, in a low-income district of Rome Reasons of One's Own. At meetings, to promote a sort of communal conversation ethic, women were each doled out an equal number of poker chips. Whenever a member wanted to speak, she paid by tossing down a chip.
