The humanist movement is an international organization formed by people of different ages, origins, culture and religion, united by the project to build a truly human society. A society in which the human being, with his needs and aspirations, is the central value. A society in which human rights are completely realized: the right to health, instruction, freedom, spirituality, search for the meaning of life, and an existence with dignity.

What is Humanism?
by Frederick Edwords
Executive Director, American Humanist Association What is humanism? The sort of answer you will get to that question depends on what sort of humanist you ask! The word "humanism" has a number of meanings, and because authors and speakers often don't clarify which meaning they intend, those trying to explain humanism can easily become a source of confusion. Fortunately, each meaning of the word constitutes a different type of humanism the different types being easily separated and defined by the use of appropriate adjectives. So, let me summarize the different varieties of humanism in this way. Literary Humanism is a devotion to the humanities or literary culture. Renaissance Humanism is the spirit of learning that developed at the end of the middle ages with the revival of classical letters and a renewed confidence in the ability of human beings to determine for themselves truth and falsehood. Cultural Humanism is the rational and empirical tradition that originated largely in ancient Greece and Rome, evolved throughout European history, and now constitutes a basic part of the Western approach to science, political theory, ethics, and law.

Home Encyclopedia Summa Fathers ... H > Humanism A B C D ... Z
Humanism is the name given to the intellectual, literary, and scientific movement of the fourteenth to the sixteenth centuries, a movement which aimed at basing every branch of learning on the literature and culture of classical antiquity. Believing that a classical training alone could form a perfect man, the Humanists so called themselves in opposition to the Scholastics, and adopted the term humaniora (the humanities) as signifying the scholarship of the ancients. Though the interval between the classical period and their own days was regarded by the Humanists as barbarous and destructive alike of art and science, Humanism (like every other historical phenomenon) was connected with the past. The use of Latin in the Liturgy of the Church had already prepared Europe for the humanistic movement. In the Middle Ages medieval national culture was undervalued. It is customary to begin the history of Humanism with Dante (1265-1321), and Petrarch (1304-74). Of the two

Humanism: the peculiar idea that every human being has worth and dignity.
At its last meeting (Mexico City, November, 1996) the Board of the International Humanist and Ethical Union approved the following "minimum statement" of Humanism:
    "Humanism is a democratic and ethical life stance which affirms that human beings have the right and responsibility to give meaning and shape to their own lives. It stands for the building of a more humane society through an ethics based on human and other natural values in a spirit of reason and free inquiry through human capabilities. It is not theistic, and it does not accept supernatural views of reality."

Types of Humanism:
In the religious arena, many words have a number of different meanings . Some examples are: Christian, cults, Humanist, pagan, Satanist, Witch and Witchcraft . The terms Humanism and Humanist are essentially meaningless when used by themselves; their meanings only become clear when preceded by an adjective, as in: Christian Humanism : a philosophy based on Christian beliefs about the nature of God, and which advocate people's fulfillment by personal effort. Cultural Humanism : A concept that knowledge can be obtained through rational thought and experimentation. It has its roots in ancient Greece and Rome. It developed into the scientific method and is the major underpinning of all sciences today. Literary Humanism : pursuit of the humanities (languages, literature, philosophy, history, etc.) Modern Humanism : a generic term encompassing both Religious and Secular Humanism. Philosophical Humanism is a philosophy centered upon the needs and interests of people.

The exact point in time when the term "Humanism" was first adopted is unknown. It is, however, certain that Italy and the re-adopting of Latin letters as the staple of human culture were responsible for the name of Humanists. Literoe humaniores was an expression coined in reference to the classic literature of Rome and the imitation and reproduction of its literary forms in the new learning; this was in contrast to and against the Literoe sacroe of scholasticism. In the time of Ario sto, Erasmus, and Luther's beginnings, the term umanisa was in effect an equivalent to the terms "classicist " or " classical scholar."

Italian Humanism Dante had an admiration for ancient letters. At first, he intended to compose his great epic in Latin verse. Petrarch considered his Africa a fair effort to reproduce Vergil . In the exordium of his chief work Petrarc h appeals to the Heliconian Sisters as well as to Jesus Christ, Savior of the world. He also reviews the epics of Homer (although he never learned Greek), Statius, and Lucan. He was overwhelmed with the friendships of many prestigous men of his day, a mong whom Cardinal Stephen Colonna was prominent. Petrarch is the pathfinder as well as the measure of the new movement. He idealized the classical world. His classicist consciousness and his Christian consciousness are revealed in his writings. Th e experiences of life constantly evoke in him classic parallels, reminiscences, associations. Julius Caesar, Papirius Cursor, are

Secular Humanism
Secular Humanism is an ethical philosophy that emphasizes a world view based upon naturalism: the belief that the physical world or nature is all that exists or is real. As such, it emphasizes scientific inquiry and rejects revealed knowledge as well as theistic morality. Secular Humanism is increasingly influential in politics, ethics and morals, as well as education. There are several core documents that state the philosophy of secular humanism. The Humanist Manifesto I completed in 1933 was signed by 34 influential people including Anton J. Carlson, John Dewey, John H. Dietrich, R. Lester Mondale, Charles Francis Potter, Curtis W. Reese, and Edwin H. Wilson. In 1973 the Humanist Manifesto II was introduced and in 1980 it was succeeded by the Secular Humanist Declaration There are a number of notable areas of belief that characterize Secular Humanism. These are outlined below along with examples of public figures implementing those beliefs in a public manner. Several examples show the voting behavior of Congressman Sander Levin, representing Michigan's 12th congressional district (which is where I live) in the U.S. Congress.

13. Existentialism Is A Humanism, Jean-Paul Sarte 1946
JeanPaul Sarte 1946. Existentialism is a humanism. One may understand by humanism a theory which upholds man as the end — in-itself and as the supreme value.
Jean-Paul Sarte 1946
Existentialism is a Humanism
Written: Lecture given in 1946
Source: Existentialism from Dostoyevsky to Sartre , ed. Walter Kaufman, Meridian Publishing Company, 1989;
First Published: World Publishing Company in 1956;
Translator: Philip Mairet;
HTML Markup: Andy Blunden My purpose here is to offer a defence of existentialism against several reproaches that have been laid against it. First, it has been reproached as an invitation to people to dwell in quietism of despair. For if every way to a solution is barred, one would have to regard any action in this world as entirely ineffective, and one would arrive finally at a contemplative philosophy. Moreover, since contemplation is a luxury, this would be only another bourgeois philosophy. This is, especially, the reproach made by the Communists. cogito From the Christian side, we are reproached as people who deny the reality and seriousness of human affairs. For since we ignore the commandments of God and all values prescribed as eternal, nothing remains but what is strictly voluntary. Everyone can do what he likes, and will be incapable, from such a point of view, of condemning either the point of view or the action of anyone else. La Terre The question is only complicated because there are two kinds of existentialists. There are, on the one hand, the Christians, amongst whom I shall name Jaspers and Gabriel Marcel, both professed Catholics; and on the other the existential atheists, amongst whom we must place Heidegger as well as the French existentialists and myself. What they have in common is simply the fact that they believe that

Last revision: 23 October 2002
This is a research project of the University for Humanistics (Universiteit voor Humanistiek) at Utrecht in the Netherlands. The other two related projects of the university are concerned with humanization, counseling, care and postmodernity and with the practice and theory of qualitative research in connection with humanist studies. The research in Humanism, Meanings of Life, Worldviews (in Dutch: `Humanisme, Zingeving, Levensbeschouwing') is focussed on European humanism in connection with meanings of life. Special attention is given to humanist worldviews as meaning frames. Meanings of life are investigated with regard to processes, frames, possibilities and problems. This constitutes a large field within which many pointed investigations are possible. The investigations are grouped into two sub-projects, which show some overlap . The sub-projects deal with humanism: meaning frame and worldview and with meanings of life You are welcome to contact us.

This is a collection of websites related to humanism. It is an ANNOTATED and SELECTIVE list. The selection and annotation reflect my considered personal judgment. Hardly any evaluative comments are given, but inclusion of a site in this webliography of humanism means that I think it is a good site, worth visiting. Notes are given in the language used by the website concerned, mostly in the form of quotations taken from that site. When notes are given in more languages, it means that the site is (partly) available in those languages.
Many of the websites listed here properly belong to more than one of the categories used. Rather than repeating sites, I have decided to mention each website only once. Most of the sites in this webliography contain links to other relevant pages on the web. The site-addresses listed here are checked at least every six months. They have been checked on 29 October 2003.
The organization and the contents of this page, of course, heavily depend on the way the concept of "humanism" is used.

Spiritual humanism allows everyone to fuse their individual religious practices onto the foundation of scientific humanist inquiry.
You can become an ordained member of the Spiritual Humanist clergy for FREE right now! As a legally ordained clergy member you can legally perform religious ceremonies and rituals like weddings, funerals, benedictions, etc. As Spiritual Humanists we believe that every person has innate right to make a spiritual connection to the rest of the cosmos. Our premise is simple: We can solve the problems of society using a religion based on reason. We cannot abandon ancient traditions and practices but we can adapt them to our new understanding of the universe. Religion must be able to adapt to new knowledge about the universe without rejecting the deep spiritual connections to human history and the natural world that we are a part of. All humans have an inalienable right and duty to practice their own religious traditions. Spiritual Humanism allows everyone to fuse their individual religious practices onto the foundation of scientific humanist inquiry. We accept people from any religious background and recognize the validity of all peaceful religious practices and behaviors as being helpful and necessary in developing the spiritual nature of humanity. If you agree that Religion must be based on Reason, you can be ordained right now for free, and be still able to practice your own religious traditions by simply clicking the button below:

A philosophical look at theoretical antihumanism.
MAPPING THE TERRAIN OF THEORETICAL ANTI-HUMANISM by Sean Homer In the recent publication of his 1992 Welleck Lecture Series, The Seeds of Time per se . Hopefully, what will become clear from the exposition that follows is that both positions are more complex, and indeed more contradictory, than they generally credit the other side with being. Why Theoretical Anti-Humanism? The case against humanism, as I understand it, revolves around two central issues: those of essentialism and morality. In other words, the belief in the humanist premise that there is an essential or universal essence of "man," and that this essence is an attribute of all individuals, or, what we would call "human nature". The corollary of this conception of a universal human nature is that it can form the basis for moral judgements and actions. However, it is not so much the emphasis upon the effectivity of moral action that differentiates humanists from anti-humanists but rather, as Kate Soper argues in Humanism and Anti-Humanism , the defence of moral action as a form of "truth" in itself, in its own right.2 These dual aspects of essentialism and morality are what Althusser criticises as the "humanist type structure," and for the rigorously scientistic Althusser any form of argument that rests upon ethical or moral criteria precludes genuine theoretical analysis and understanding. At a less theoretical level, the endorsement of humanism was seen as analogous to the privileging of a particular conception of the subject, usually the white, heterosexual, male subject. Theoretical anti-humanism's political cutting edge was the rejection of a singular, universal conception of the subject and the attempt to open up spaces for the articulation and acknowledgement of different forms of subjectivity.

The great intellectual movement of Renaissance Italy was humanism. The humanists believed that the Greek and Latin classics contained both all the lessons one needed to lead a moral and effective life and the best models for a powerful Latin style. They developed a new, rigorous kind of classical scholarship, with which they corrected and tried to understand the works of the Greeks and Romans, which seemed so vital to them.

In Latin
Fifteenth century Although humanists had thronged the papal court since the beginning of the century, Pius II was the first real humanist to sit in the chair of Peter. Born in Siena as Enea Silvio Piccolomini, he acquired a reputation as a diplomat, belletrist, and womanizer, and was crowned poet laureate by the Emperor Frederick in 1442. After serving the emperor and the anti-Roman Council of Basel, Piccolomini joined the Roman camp in 1446. He became a cardinal in 1456 and in 1458 was elected pope. As pope, the only work of scholarship he was able to continue was his "Commentaries," a remarkably frank autobiography in which he put his passions and prejudices on full view. In the passage shown here, Pius expresses his bitter contempt for the French, who had been unwilling to join his crusade against the Great Turk.
