Discover humanism and its role in our world

What do Plato, Kant, Marx, Nietzsche, Einstein, and Dawkins have in common? They all share broad humanist beliefs. Whether you want to find out more about the history and development of humanism, are studying the subject in class, or are aware of its increasing prominence in our society today and want to investigate it further, Teach Yourself Humanism is a comprehensive guide to this important and diverse philosophy. This book delves into the history and development of humanist thought and addresses the many questions that surround humanism today. Why is humanism important? What implications does humanist thought have on our society as a whole and the way in which it is governed? How does humanism differ from agnosticism and atheism? How does humanism deal with birth, marriage and death? Addressing all of these key questions, Teach Yourself Humanism is a fascinating read.
