Boissier's paper it would appear that humanitas was from the start a fairly elastic virtue with the Romans, and that the word came to be used rather loosely, so that in a late Latin writer, Aulus Gellius, we find a complaint that it had been turned aside from its true meaning. Humanitas, says Gellius, is incorrectly used to denote a "promiscuous benevolence, what the Greeks call philanthropy," whereas the word really implies doctrine and discipline, and is applicable not to men in general but only to a select few,—it is, in short, aristocratic and not democratic in its implication. 1 The confusion that Gellius complains of is not only interesting in itself, but closely akin to one that we need to be on guard against to-day The Humanistic Tradition, Book 2: Medieval Europe And The World Beyond.

The most famous writer of the time, William Shakespeare, wrote 37 plays between 1590 and 1613 At the Foot of the Tree: A Wanderer's Musings Before the Fall. The nineteenth-century historian Jacob Burckhardt, in his classic work, The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy, noted as a "curious fact" that some men of the new culture were "men of the strictest piety, or even ascetics". If he had meditated more deeply on the meaning of the careers of such humanists as Abrogio Traversari (1386–1439), the General of the Camaldolese Order, perhaps he would not have gone on to describe humanism in unqualified terms as "pagan", and thus helped precipitate a century of infertile debate about the possible existence of something called "Christian humanism" which ought to be opposed to "pagan humanism". --Peter Partner, Renaissance Rome, Portrait of a Society 1500–1559 (University of California Press 1979) pp. 14–15 The Harmony of Nature and Spirit: Meaning in Life (Meaning in Life/Irving Singer, Vol 3). Unfortunately for Ibn Warraq, he has a wrong interpretation for that verse. It is not surprising that a non-Christian would have a wrong interpretation; what is surprising is the fact that Ibn Warraq himself doesn’t notice that his interpretation leaves him with only two options for a society: God or Caesar. So, if it is not God as the basis for the society, it must be Statism, if we follow this view Toward a Unified Platonic Human Psychology.

The new spirit broke away from theology and Church. The principle of free, scientific inquiry gained ground. It was quite natural that the value of the new ideal should be exaggerated while the medieval national culture was undervalued. It is customary to begin the history of Humanism with Dante (1265-1321), and Petrarch (1304-74) Mythologies of Transhumanism. C.) in ancient India, and Confucius (551 - 479 B.

The humanist approach allows for massive diversity in choices of “the good life”. What exactly constitutes a meaningful, worthwhile, purposive flourishing life is an area where we not only differ but where it is good that we differ, both because people are inherently different in their talents and inclinations and because it allows different experiments in living, trying different models that feed off each other and lead to a diverse and interesting and flourishing human society The Farm That Tried to Feed the World: Why Local Farms, Sharing Communities, and Transition Neighborhoods Matter to All of Us.
