Humanism & The World Today

Due to scheduling changes, this discussion has been moved to Saturday Nov 10.  The room is the Latino/Hispanic conference room A.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.


Andrew E. Wilson Ph.D. will lead a discussion on how Humanism, as a philosophy, intersects with the world in the 21st century; and how we, as humanists, should engage with the world. Some of the questions considered will include: -- What are some of the most important issues in the world from a humanist point-of-view? -- How does a humanist approach to these issues differ from that of an atheist or other non-believer? -- In particular, does the humanist approach offer benefits that bring solutions to some of these issues into our reach?
The format of this talk will be a brief (less than 20 mins.) presentation of Andrew's thoughts, followed by approximately 60 mins. of group discussion.

Andrew E. Wilson Ph.D. is a self-guided student of humanism. In his day job, Andrew is a member of the faculty at Saint Mary's College of California, where he teaches various Marketing courses in the School of Economics and Business Administration. Andrew's professional research is in the field of consumer psychology, and has been published in the Journal of Consumer Research,Psychology & Marketing, and the Journal of Supply Chain Management.

    Andrew's talents as a college professor really came through. He framed the top, humanism today, well. He then had us break into three groups to discuss different topics. The discussions were lively and friendly. I think everyone enjoyed the meeting.
