Description

In the absence of a concept of 'God', the Humanist does not ask, 'Is there life after death?' but rather 'Is there authentic life before death?' Can we become inner-directed, self-motivated, responsible individuals, here and now? This question has been answered in the affirmative by Humanist philosophers throughout history. In this compilation of quotations, Roger E. Greeley lets the words of prominent Humanists speak for themselves. Here, questions about human nature, immortality, the unknown, faith, reason, free will, and more are addressed by Albert Camus, John Stuart Mill, Robert Green Ingersoll, Bertrand Russell, Paul Kurtz, and a host of other renowned Humanists.This outstanding collection is unique in that it represents the Humanist viewpoint on a number of fascinating issues. This volume provides compelling evidence for the worth of Humanism and is indispensable to those who wish to communicate effectively the values that stand in place of a God concept as a positive governor in the conduct of life. It is required reading for a fuller understanding of the history and philosophy of contemporary Humanist thought.
