Humanism and the Good Life

Proceedings of the Fifteenth Congress of the World Federation of Humanists

Peter Horwath, William L. Hendrickson, L. Teresa Valdivieso and Eric Thor

The participants at the Fifteenth Congress of the World Federation of Humanists dealt with a post-Marxist world and how Humanism possesses the power to approach the task of living in this changed environment both locally and globally. In the resulting collection of papers, Humanism and the Good Life, scholars redefine Humanism and explain their approaches to it in essays on environmental, social, economic, and moral issues, as well as cultural and ethnic problems. The contributors come from Africa, Western and Central Europe, North and South America. Their papers demonstrate the wide spectrum of diversity, compassion, and dedication that make up the connection between Humanism and the good life at the end of the twentieth century.
