Princeton's Secular Society Home Events The Journal Links *WHAT'S NEW* For the upcoming academic year (2001-2002), we are looking for a few enthusiastic students to lead CommonSense successfully into its third year at Princeton. If you are interested in becoming an officer (most positions are currently open!), please contact Vincent Lloyd '01 . Freshmen are especially welcome. ABOUT US CommonSense is Princeton's secular society. What unites us is an abiding interest in discussing profound questions from a secular perspective in the realms of religion, philosophy, politics, science and history. CommonSense does not support any one, specific stance within these realms; rather, we advocate and encourage free inquiry. The Nobel Laureate and British philosopher Bertrand Russell has described free inquiry in this way: Free inquiry "means thinking freelyas freely, at least, as is possible for a human being. The person who is free in any respect is free from something; what is the free thinker free from? To be worthy of the name, he must be free of two things: the force of tradition, and the tyrant of his own passions. No one is completely free from either, but in the measure of a man's emancipation he deserves to be called a free thinker." CommonSense holds meetings and organizes events throughout the year including lectures, interfaith/non-faith dialogues, movie nights, debates, group discussions and social events.

    humanism was not opposed to logic, as is commonly held, but opposed to the particular brand of logic known as Scholasticism. Civic humanism.
    humanism as both a program and a philosophy. Textbooks will tell you that the humanists of the Renaissance rediscovered the Latin and Greek classics (hence the "rebirth" or "renaissance" of the classical world), that humanist philosophy stressed the dignity of humanity, and that humanists shifted intellectual emphasis off of theology and logic to specifically human studies. In pursuing this program, the argument goes, the humanists literally created the European Renaissance and paved the way for the modern, secular world.
    studia humanitatis . The studia humanitatis originated in the mddle ages and were all those educational disciplines outside of theology and natural science. Humanism was not opposed to logic, as is commonly held, but opposed to the particular brand of logic known as Scholasticism. In point of fact, the humanists actively revised the science of logic. Humanism, then, really begins during the middle ages in Europe; while the humanist scholars of the Renaissance made great strides and discoveries in this field, humanistic studies were really a product of middle ages. Not only that, the "rediscovery" of the classical world which was the hallmark of Renaissance humanism in reality began much earlier in the middle ages; as Europeans began to see themselves as a single ethnic group with a common origin in the middle ages, the recovery of classical literature, both Latin and Greek, became a concern for all the medieval centers of learning.
    studia humanitatis consisted of more or less five disciplines drawn from the classical educational curriculum, called the

    Definition of Theism : Theism may be defined as belief in a god or gods. Some religions have many gods; some have only one. Some religions are theistic; others are not. Theism is the opposite of atheism, which is belief that there is no god. Biblical theism is belief in the Judeo-Christian God, i.e., the God presented in the Bible. Biblical theism encompasses many subtopics. A study of the God of the Bible will necessarily focus attention on the Godhead, composed of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It relates to the nature and attributes of God, the pre-existence and deity of Christ, the person and operation of the Holy Spirit, and a host of other subcategories.

    Roy grew up quite happily in very rural Pinnebog with much outdoor life: skating, swimming, playing baseball and tending the garden. There were Norwegian, Anglo-Canadian and French Canadian boys. ''It was a rather egalitarian situation...religious differences were taken for granted and ignored." A two-culture background disposed him to be international in outlook.
    Although he had friends in the village and countryside, he had no intellectual competitors. He went to the village school; and on completion of the eight grades at Pinnebog, he was sent to the Ferris Institute at Big Rapids to prepare him for the university. "There, he said, "I began to stand out and gained the friendship of both Mr. and Mrs. Ferris.'' W. D. Henderson, his teacher in physics and chemistry, once visited Sellars's home and saw his father's library. "Now I know," he said, "why Sellars has stood out."

    Renaissance Humanism
    Humanism is the term generally applied to the predominant social philosophy and intellectual and literary currents of the period from 1400 to 1650. The return to favor of the pagan classics stimulated the philosophy of secularism, the appreciation of worldly pleasures, and above all intensified the assertion of personal independence and individual expression. Zeal for the classics was a result as well as a cause of the growing secular view of life. Expansion of trade, growth of prosperity and luxury, and widening social contacts generated interest in worldly pleasures, in spite of formal allegiance to ascetic Christian doctrine. Men thus affected the humanists welcomed classical writers who revealed similar social values and secular attitudes. Historians are pretty much agreed on the general outlines of those mental attitudes and scholarly interests which are assembled under the rubric of humanism. The most fundamental point of agreement is that the humanist mentality stood at a point midway between medieval supernaturalism and the modern scientific and critical attitude. Medievalists see humanism as the terminal product of the Middle Ages. Modern historians are perhaps more apt to view humanism as the germinal period of modernism. Perhaps the most we can assume is that the man of the Renaissance lived, as it were, between two worlds. The world of the medieval Christian matrix, in which the significance of every phenomenon was ultimately determined through uniform points of view, no longer existed for him. On the other hand, he had not yet found in a system of scientific concepts and social principles stability and security for his life. In other words, Renaissance man may indeed have found himself suspended between faith and reason.

    New humanism. After 1930, interest in New humanism waned. By 1942 Babbitt and More were both dead, and Alfred Kazin was dismissing them as merely . . .
    New Humanism
    Largely a reaction to modern relativism and determinism, New Humanism was a critical and cultural movement that affirmed freedom of the will and the necessity of standards in life and art. Although the New Humanists were not professional philosophers, their literary and social criticism was informed by "a working philosophy mediating between dogma and skepticism and devoid of revelation and ecclesiastical organization" (Foerster, Towards Standards 203). The movement came to brief prominence in the late 1920s because it offered to cure America's spiritual malaise and to check its fatal drift into materialism, hedonism, and demagoguery. However, Irving Babbitt (1865-1933) and Paul Elmer More (1864-1937) had been propounding humanism (they disliked the adjective "new") almost since their meeting as Harvard graduate students in 1892. Both were midwesterners who found a usable past in New England culture but who also read widely in the literature and philosophy of East and West to find "a law of life" (Babbitt, Literature 119) transcending time and place.
