Meeting Description: We will investigate?and?uncover?the principles behind Humanism.?With the aid of others such as Fred Edwords of the American Humanist Association (on DVD),?we will?investigate a prescriptive recommendation about how to use the term?Humanism.?This will include four main characteristics:? (1) a method of inquiry;?(2) a cosmic world view;?(3) a con- crete set of ethical recommendations for each individual's life stance; and (4) a main political stance, that is, separation of church and state.
Following the ?disrobing? of the term Humanism, the group will split up into groups of near equal number?and discuss the above points of what it means to be a Humanist.?
Following the discussion we will evaluate this year's topics and suggest topics for next year's meetings. Come with your ideas!
