New Revised Edition from Humanist Press

Humanism As the Next Step -- the only book of its kind available in America today!

While there have been technical studies of humanism in the past, never before has there been such an authoritative, popular treatment of the whole field.

In Praise of the First Edition (1954):

"A book which carefully preserves the undogmatic excellence of the humanist philosophy."

--Manas

"...pioneering material on the worldwide humanist revolution."

--Julian Huxley

"A significant book."

--Eleanor Roosevelt

"At last I can feel comfortable applying the humanist label to myself."

--Margaret Sanger

Mary Morain's interest in social reform led her to leave professional social work and teaching to become a full-time organizational volunteer, serving on the boards of many nonprofit organizations. In the 1940s and 1950s, she was on birth control boards in Massachusetts and San Francisco and participated in pioneering world conferences and meetings on family planning. Past president of the International Society for General Semantics, she has edited four books in the field. Both she and her husband Lloyd are Fellows of the World Academy of Art and Science.

Lloyd Morain, a former president of the American Humanist Association and editor of the Humanist magazine, was a founding director of the International Humanist and Ethical Union. He has worked in various capacities for industrial, mining, motion picture, and utility companies, including Earth Sciences, San Francisco Films, and the Illinois Gas Company. He has served on the boards of many nonprofit organizations, including the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. His book, The Human Cougar, explores the life of working drifters.
