The History Channel presents a history of the Renaissance using an original song and colorful illusrations. Hutten's death may be regarded as the end of German Humanism properly speaking. And he did all this while identifying himself as a religious person, albeit not a conventional one. Plethon, also mentioned above, taught Platonic philosophy at Florence.

Secular Humanism is a term which has come into use in the last thirty years to describe a world view with the following elements and principles: * A conviction that dogmas, ideologies and traditions, whether religious, political or social, must be weighed and tested by each individual and not simply accepted on faith. * Commitment to the use of critical reason, factual evidence, and scientific methods of inquiry, rather than faith and mysticism, in seeking solutions to human problems and answers to important human questions. * A primary concern with fulfillment, growth, and creativity for both the individual and humankind in general. * A constant search for objective truth, with the understanding that new knowledge and experience constantly alter our imperfect perception of it. * A concern for this life and a commitment to making it meaningful through better understanding of ourselves, our history, our intellectual and artistic achievements, and the outlooks of those who differ from us. * A search for viable individual, social and political principles of ethical conduct, judging them on their ability to enhance human well-being and individual responsibility. * A conviction that with reason, an open marketplace of ideas, good will, and tolerance, progress can be made in building a better world for ourselves and our children Images of the Body in India: South Asian and European Perspectives on Rituals and Performativity.

This post first appeared in 2009 on the HB and has been updated. John Dewey described Humanism as our "common faith." Julian Huxley called it "Religion without Revelation." The first Humanist Manifesto spoke openly of Humanism as a religion. Many other Humanists could be cited who have acknowledged that Humanism is a religion. In fact, claiming that Humanism was "the new religion" was trendy for at least 100 years, perhaps beginning in 1875 with the publication of The Religion of Humanity by Octavius Brooks Frothingham (1822-1895), son of the distinguished Unitarian clergyman, Nathaniel Langdon Frothingham (1793-1870), pastor of the First Unitarian Church of Boston, 1815-1850 Complexity and the Function of Mind in Nature (Cambridge Studies in Philosophy and Biology). For Clark and Blain, the end of the race isn’t nearly as important as the race itself. “In James’ (Woods) campaign, we wanted to normalize atheism in politics, and I think we did it,” Blain said. “This time, we asked: Can we inspire people to run as atheists? And we’ve done that.” Which begs the question — if only one or two of their candidates has a shot at lasting beyond the primary, what’s next for Spectrum Experience Personal Identity?

With this kind of wording, you can be sure to convince no-one… In First World Countries, both genders have advantages and disadvantages. That reminds me of women saying ‘you’re a man, you will never understand the struggle’ Ethics in the 90's: Living Wills. Secular Student Alliance at Jacksonville State University held a "Stone A Heathen" day. Unbeknown to them, a street preacher was already there when they went to set up! The preacher had signs depicting anti-pride with a list of sins, which in turn caused many Christian students to donate to SSA at JSU, saying that the preacher did not represent their version of Christianity The Spirit (Wonderful you). And what are we to think of the animal world? Are even the greatest apes nothing more than automatons? Of course, all this could be reduced to physiological phenomena, as Roy Wood Sellars, the Manifesto’s original author, suggested they should be, but anyone who tried to capture the holistic significance of love or loyalty, guilt or grandeur, in terms of brain cell functioning alone could be rightly accused of displaying a pitiful paucity of imagination Ethics in the 90's: Ethics in Literature. More than Mandela, more than MLK, more than Chavez, more than Ghandi? I am just throwing out some of the more well known names in the ‘good works’ department.

The postmodern attempt to “deconstruct” the “essentialist” category “woman” began as a way to refute the idea that women are “naturally” maternal, nurturing and so on, but hilariously (in a way – well, disastrously actually) merely succeeded in abolishing women altogether The Universal Perspective of Humankind on Earth!

His autograph letters, such as the one on display, provide a good sample of "chancery italic," a script developed by Roman humanists in the late fifteenth century from the humanist cursive minuscule invented by the Florentine humanist Niccolo Niccoli in the 1420s HEGEL'S Philosophy of Mind.

Nehemiah instituted civil regulations ensuring social justice and the rule of law. Ezra, who, according to the traditional account, was authorized by the Persian king to impose the laws of the Torah on the community, annulled the marriages with heathen wives and introduced strict observance of the Sabbath, including a ban on business transactions.
