A short and hopefully sweet introduction to the philosophy of Humanism
This book was written to provide a quick overview of the philosophy of Humanism for the average Joe or Jane. I don't care which actually because i'm a Humanist and I don't judge people based on their gender or skin color or any other arbitrary characteristic. So, let's revise that introductory statement. This book is for the average human, regardless of his or her name, who wants to learn more about Humanism.
Humanism is one of the most influential and yet most maligned philsophies of all time. Unfortunately, most people don't know anything abouti t. To make matters worse, there are a lot of people who are already Humanists and just don't know it yet because no one has ever taken the time to properly introduce them to the philosophy.
In intend to change that with this book. Consider yourself introduced.
Conversational and Accessible
This short little book is really more of an extended essay, which is fine, since that makes it that much easier to digest. Its tone is conversational and it's quite accessible. An in-depth treatment of humanism it's not, but for anyone looking for an easy-to-read introduction that covers the bases, this'll do. by T Lee at Amazon
Decades ago, when I discovered and read The Humanist Manifesto, I knew I'd finally found the ethical and philosophical home I'd been searching for. Reading this handbook is icing on that cake ... Hancock's good humor and intelligence shines all through it. A great, thoughtful read, chock full of interesting history and tidbits. by Monica at Amazon
