Philosophy {9} ~ Humanism

Humanism is an approach in philosophy that focuses on human values and concerns, attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanism is a perspective that affirms some notion of human nature. Secular humanism is a secular ideology that espouses reason, ethics, and justice, while specifically rejecting supernatural and religious dogma as a basis of morality and decision-making. Secular humanism contrasts with religious humanism, which is an integration of humanist ethical philosophy with religious rituals and beliefs that center on human needs, interests, and abilities.
