What we’re about
The Concord Area Humanists are a casual and inclusive collection of Humanists and secularists of all types from the Concord area in Massachusetts. We meet several times a month to discuss topics related to Humanism. Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.

- How Religious Intolerance Began by Dr. Stephen GreenblattNeeds location
How did the West change from freedom of choice in matters of religion to compulsion? How did it change from loving friendship to violent persecution? How could murder in the name of God – an act virtually inconceivable in the Greek and Roman world over their many centuries of existence – have ever been justified, let alone justified in the name of a God of love? Stephen will explore these weighty questions.
This talk will be on YouTube Live on the American Humanist Association channel.
Stephen Jay Greenblatt is an American Shakespearean, literary historian, and author. He has served as the John Cogan University Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University since 2000.
