Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why should we believe in God without any evidence? How can there be meaning in life when death is final? Does a Godless universe imply moral relativism? With adherents including Einstein, Freud, Philip Pullman, and Frank Zappa, and often described as the thinking persons religion, Humanism aims to make sense of such questions by appealing to shared human values, rationality, and tolerance. This lively and provocative book is essential reading for atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, rationalists, sceptics, and believers alike. Peter Cave is a writer, presenter, and lecturer in philosophy at The Open University and City University, London.

Synopsis:

With historical adherents including Shaw, Freud and Asimov, Humanism's central quest is to make sense of the world without God, using an appeal to shared human values, rationality, and tolerance. Essential reading for both atheists and believers, this Beginner's Guide will explain all aspects of Humanist philosophy, offering several persuasive arguments against God's existence, whilst providing an alternative and valuable conception of life without Him.
