The Devil and Secular Humanism: The Children of the Enlightenment


This volume clarifies the nature of humanism by exploring historical and current thought. The development of humanist ideas is viewed as an important part of the development of the philosophy of democracy and science. Often the object of attack and suspicion by fundamentalists, conservatives, and traditional religionists, humanism here receives clear and responsible treatment. Humanism is approached as a legitimate philosophic, ideological, and religious alternative, a party to the current struggle for a postmodern life philosophy. This text examines humanism in a more comprehensive way than most current literature.
