The Humanist Institute (an affiliate organization of the American Humanist Association) is pleased to announce a new online course is now available. Philosophy and the Humanist Connection is the Institute’s latest addition to COHE (Continuum of Humanist Education) –the Internet’s first website offering interactive courses in humanist thought.
Howard Radest, a founder and the first Dean of The Humanist Institute, wrote this course. No one is better equipped to present humanist philosophy than Howard. He says; “In this course, we try to become philosophical critics. With that in mind, we explore some of the basic areas of humanist philosophy: what is humanism’s view of human nature, of nature, of culture, of religion, and of science. We ask ourselves the Socratic question: what do we mean by humanist philosophy in these areas and how well does it stand up to challenge.”
