A redeemed Jerusalem became the symbol of the hope for the coming of the Messiah, who would herald not only the liberation of the Jews from Exile but also the establishment of the universal kingdom of God upon earth.

Marshaling our intellectual resources toward articulating an alternative to capitalism has become even more imperative since the fall of state-capitalism that called itself “Communism” and the prevailing notion, including among many in the Left, that an alternative to capitalism is not possible.

Spheres of Reason: New Essays in the Philosophy of Normativity (Mind Association Occasional Series)

The founder of Renaissance humanism was Petrarch (1304-74), an Italian poet and man of letters who attempted to apply the values and lessons of antiquity to questions of Christian faith and morals in his own day. By the late 14th century, the term studia humanitatis ("humanistic studies") had come to mean a well-defined cycle of education, including the study of grammar, rhetoric, history, poetry, and moral philosophy, based on Latin authors and classical texts On Aristotle's "On the Soul 3.1-5" (Ancient Commentators on Aristotle). Or, of Mao Tse-tung - who proved his worth in the art of government and by his arbitration between the founding ideas of Marx-Leninism and their implementation on Chinese soil (for full details see my Humanize Hong Kong - http://www.humanist.org.hk/hhk.html). Yet, China has the spirit of democracy - this is why Mao spoke of the New Democracy Utilitarianism, liberty & representative government. He decides that he should write a letter to Jim’s owner and then pray. He writes the letter and feels washed of sin but then begins to think of Jim and their trip down the river, he recalls “a-floating along, talking, singing and laughing” and finds that he is unable “to strike no places to harden” him against Jim, “but only the other kind.” He remembers how Jim would stand Huck’s watch on top of his own so that he could “go on sleeping,” how Jim called Huck “honey” and “do everything he could think of” for him and how “grateful” Jim was when Huck told the lie about smallpox, preventing Jim from being caught and how Jim said that Huck “was the best friend old Jim ever had in the world, and the only one he’s got now.” Huck then sees the letter he just wrote: “I took it up, and held it in my hand Happily Godless - Humanism for a Better World. At the moment authorities mainly use exclusion zones to keep individuals with a sex offense history away from schools and parks. But such zones have the potential to become new ways to reconstruct the space of our cities, to keep the good people in and the bad people out Psychology as the Science of Human Being: The Yokohama Manifesto (Annals of Theoretical Psychology).

The second is philosophical, German, seeks the totality and autonomy of knowledge, and stresses understanding rather than freedom as the key to human fulfilment and emancipation. The two themes converged and competed in complex ways in the 19th century and beyond, and between them set the boundaries of its various humanisms. [51] Homo homini deus est ("The human being is a god to humanity" or "god is nothing [other than] the human being to himself"), Feuerbach had written. [52] Victorian novelist Mary Ann Evans, known to the world as George Eliot, translated Strauss's Das Leben Jesu ("The Life of Jesus", 1846) and Ludwig Feuerbach's Das Wesen Christianismus ("The Essence of Christianity") Emotions, Values, and the Law. So humanist morality attaches value and importance to the individual – all the more so because we believe that this is the only life we have – there is no pie in the sky when you die. The interdependence of the individual and society implies the duty of the individual to society – individual responsibility for one’s behaviour as it affects the collectivity of society. And cooperation is the basis of living in communities The Truth about the Truth (New Consciousness Reader).

She organized a public protest against a judge who commented during the trial of three male college students charged with raping a female student, "rape is a normal reaction" to the way women dress� Her protest led to the recall of the judge. Humanism, Agnosticism, Anti-authoritarianism, are grateful to Annie Laurie Gaylor for her unceasing devotion to researching and recording the thoughts and convictions of the brave women who have challenged the efforts of all religions to dominate the social, ethical, and political atmosphere of society Emotional Truth. The pace of the return gained momentum when Zerubbabel, a scion of King David, was appointed governor of Judea in about 521. Encouraged by the prophets Haggai and Zechariah, the governor led 44,000 exiles back to Judea What is Consciousness?: Three Sages Look Behind the Veil (A New Paradigm Book). Christianity believes that Jesus Christ is our only salvation. Paul, in Romans 1:25, could well have been speaking about religious humanism, �Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.� Humanism has become the enemy�s stronghold. The Bible teaches that we are to FIGHT the enemy; to CAPTURE his strongholds; to OCCUPY his strongholds Back to the Rough Ground: Practical Judgment and the Lure of Technique (REVISIONS). The Parisian "Society of Theophilanthropy" which he sponsored, is described by his biographer as "a forerunner of the ethical and humanist societies that proliferated later" ... [Paine's book] the trenchantly witty Age of Reason (1793) ... pours scorn on the supernatural pretensions of scripture, combining Voltairean mockery with Paine's own style of taproom ridicule to expose the absurdity of a theology built on a collection of incoherent Levantine folktales. [39] Davies identifies Paine's The Age of Reason as "the link between the two major narratives of what Jean-François Lyotard [40] calls the narrative of legitimation": the rationalism of the 18th-century Philosophes and the radical, historically based German 19th-century Biblical criticism of the Hegelians David Friedrich Strauss and Ludwig Feuerbach. "The first is political, largely French in inspiration, and projects 'humanity as the hero of liberty' Dangerous Emotions.

As Riccardo Fubini has pointed out, although Baron stated that his book was inspired by the struggle of the western democracies against Hitlerian tyranny, the pattern was already set well before the coming to power of the Nazis, preformed by the inflections of German idealism. In this scheme the Visconti of Milan are implicitly a prefiguration of Bonaparte theratening Britain Baron writes: Visionary Human. Black cows, rugged looking, grazing and more pigs - trackside farming The Top Ten Things Dead People Want to Tell YOU. In the past, in Malta, this law has been used to try to stifle literary expression and prosecute people dressing in costumes in carnival. Even when the accused were liberated, the threat of this law hanging over people’s heads serves to stifle freedom of expression The Italian Romance Epic in the Age of Humanism: The Matter of Italy and the World of Rome. Seventeen years ago the AHA held their annual conference in her home city and appropriately recognized her as our "Humanist Heroine" of the year. I had the opportunity of attending that conference and hearing her vibrant acceptance speech. In that speech she told us she began to question religion when her high school curriculum included reading the King James Bible which to her sounded cruel Supersizing the Mind: Embodiment, Action, and Cognitive Extension (Philosophy of Mind). I like your “the buck stops here” attitude. I considered myself an atheist for many years but it didn’t occur to me to pursue humanism. Too late now tho, I’m a theist – a christian. But I hope I’m the sort of theist who is humanist-friendly, certainly my sister and I get on very well together and I love her to bits. I don’t try to change her views either tho I have to admit I’d like it if she did; but I don’t see that happening soon, she’s pretty pragmatic Bad Faith Good Faith. The fact is that the mystical feeling of enlargement, union and emancipation has no specific intellectual content of its own. It is capable of forming matrimonial alliances with material furnished by the most diverse philosophies and theologies, provided only they can find a place in their framework for its peculiar emotional moods. (William James Varieties of Religious Experience) Finally, let me just indicate the breadth of the humanist tradition by flicking through some of the people in whom we recognise humanist thought, albeit the word (as I said) did not come into its present meaning until the last century Philosophy and the Passions: Toward a History of Human Nature (Literature and Philosophy). And it was this powerful movement towards Political Humanism that initiated many of the concepts that shaped the modern world: such as the concept of the nation as the basis of the State, State sovereignty, international law regulating relations between nation-States. Humanitas and its political issue therefore plunged mankind headlong into worldly affairs to the detriment of preparation with the soul for entry into the afterlife Toward the Maitreyan revolution. Pope Innocent VII (1484-1492) and Pope Leo X (1513-1521) were from the Borgia and Medici families which were kind of like the Sopranos of the middle ages. These three Popes contributed significantly to the unrest that led to the Reformation. Nicholas V didn't help with his lavishness. Paul II and Sixtus IV were also not great. Erasmus, the best known humanist in history, was a key influence on Luther's Reform It’s a bummer that Pope Alexander VI was being a jerk right when he should have been listening to Erasmus and reforming the Church Markings.
