Making Humanism a Living Philosophy for Everyday Life
As our world undergoes tremendous changes in its politics, economy, and the relationship between humanity and the natural world, we as a society are moving gradually, but inevitably toward a new synthesis in our attitude and thinking about life. Like every great moment in human experience, this change is no sudden entry upon the stage of history, but is an idea voiced once and yet again over the course of many thousands of years. From the writings of the first scientists, mathematicians and pre-socratic philosophers, and reverberating through the literature, insights and discoveries in our own time, the Humanist theme has accompanied the emergence of the fully developed person. But only in the last hundred years of so, has that theme been adopted explicitly in the form of organized Humanism as we find it today. The Freethought tradition is the first springboard for this organization, but other paths have also converged. Themes of empathy, sympathy, liberation and enlightenment have grown from a fierce passion for political liberty and freedom from theological oppression.
So what do we do now? On the base of such developments, how do we bring all humankind to the recognition of its own inherent freedom, and our individual potentials for creative living? In particular, how do we as an organized group meet these challanges? Lets talk about it. JP
