Humanism

The Happy Human for HumanismHumanism

Jennifer Hancock is a Humanist activist. In fact, she worked professionally for a Humanist organization from 2001 until 2007. She joined the Humanist movement back in 1994. So, she has a lot to say on the subject.

Collected here are her writings on the subject of Humanism, religion and morality.

I have a dream

What can Humanism be in society, and how can we fund the creation of Humanist communities.

Humanist Learning SystemsI have a dream. My dream is that when people have a problem, they won’t turn to charlatans or woo based self-help for help. They won’t turn to supernatural nonsense and wishing to fix their problems, they will instead take responsibility for their actions, to the extent that they can and fix them!

This dream of rational problem solving extends to not just personal and interpersonal problems but to business and politics as well.

My dream is a dream of a Humanist community where we encourage each other to learn and grow and be better people in all areas of our lives.

To have this dream become a reality, we need physical buildings where we can host these communities and come together to learn whatever skill it is we are hoping to learn.

Antagonist vs. Accomodationist PDF Print E-mail

Antagonist vs. Accomodationist

Why being accommodating is a good thing. 

ourperspectiveweb.jpg

There have been a lot of arguments within the larger Freethought community about whether we should be engaging in antagonistic activism or whether our activism should be of an accommodating nature.  I am a Humanist so I tend towards being accomodating and not antagonistic.

What is the difference and why does this matter so much and why even though it matters we should all just chill the F out!

What is Education? PDF Print E-mail

What is Education?

Why are the humanities and Humanism so crucial to a good education?

educationweb.jpg

What is education and why do Humanists care so much about it?  Education is loosely defined as the imparting or acquiring of knowledge. So .... what is knowledge? Knowledge is the state of knowing what is true. So really education is a way to learn what is true and what isn’t. And this matters greatly.

When it comes to problem solving and even moral reasoning, it turns out that knowing what is true and what isn’t is often the difference between successfully solving your problem and failing. This is one of the reasons why Humanists care so much about education.

Confucianism, Humanism and Equal Rights

Why Humanism is relevant to social development.

Everyone should have the chance to contribute to society

There is an interesting essay in China Daily written by a guy name Thorsten, which leads me to believe he is European – see: http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/opinion/2012-12/10/content_16000968.htm.  The title of the essay is Europes path to a new Humanism.  The author compares the Confucian system of education and society organization with that which has been in Europe. While I think the author presents a rather simplistic and therefore unrealistic view of what is happening in Europe, I still think this essay is worth contemplating.

There are no good reasons for your ethics PDF Print E-mail

There can be no reasons

There is no absolute basis for ethics. It is all subjective and it’s all situational. Get over it and get on with trying to be a good person.

Your brain is a gooshy mess. Don't expect perfection from it.

The main drawback of being a “philosopher” for a living is that you have to deal with minutia experts. These are people who are a bit obsessive about making sure everything in their philosophy fits perfectly.  Even if they like something and agree with it in principal and practice it as a person, they feel compelled to seek out the nooks and crannies to satisfy themselves that everything is as they should be. What they seek is a perfect philosophy. The problem is that there is no such thing as a perfect philosophy.
