Christian humanism emphasizes the humanity of Jesus, his social teachings and his propensity to synthesize human spirituality and materialism.[citation needed] It regards humanist principles like universal human dignity and individual freedom and the primacy of human happiness as essential and principal components of, or at least compatible with, the teachings of Jesus.[citation needed] Christian humanism can be seen as a philosophical union of Christian ethics and humanist principles. The term humanism was coined by theologian Friedrich Niethammer at the beginning of the 19th century. Christian humanism has its roots in the traditional teaching that humans are made in the image of God (Latin Imago Dei) which is the basis of individual worth and personal dignity. This found strong biblical expression in the Judeo-Christian attention to righteousness and social justice. Its linkage to more secular philosophical humanism can be traced to the 2nd-century AD writings of Justin Martyr, an early ...
Humanism does not scare Christians. Well, it doesnt scare Christians that actually observe what they say they believe. I disagree with asserting that all Christians be lumped into this Sunday lunch stereotype. There are ways of knowing that you are right with God. It does not require actions, yet these are what seem to be necessary in your sight in order to justify ones standing with God. Care and concern for others is precisely what Christ exemplified in his actions, which were a product of not only his deity but his example as a human. Beck clearly has not understood Christianity except from a negative starting point. Who is Beck to tell a Christian what he should and should not be doing? Simply put, it seems that you and Beck are asserting your own humanism and expecting Christians to abide by such. I am not afraid of humanism, I am just afraid of a humanism that asserts the right that every person decides his own definition of humanism. Sure, there is credence in the claim that many ...
Posted on 06/20/2007 5:24:39 AM PDT by spirited irish. In addition to original Darwinism, today there are two other versions of evolutionary theory: punctuated equilibrium and neo-Darwinism, a revamped version of the original Darwinism. No matter the variant though, evolution serves as the creation myth for the theological and philosophical worldview of Evolutionary Humanism (Naturalism). Evolution is a religion, declared evolutionary Humanist Michael Ruse. This was true of evolution in the beginning and it is true still today One of the most popular books of the era was Religion Without Revelation, by Julian Huxley, grandson of Thomas Huxley As always evolution was doing everything expected of religion and more. (National Post, Canadian Edition, 5/13/2000) Humanism is a philosophical, religious, and moral point of view. (Humanist Manifestos I & II, 1980, Introduction, Paul Kurtz) The primary denominations of Evolutionary Humanism are Cultural Marxism/Communism, Secular Humanism, Postmodernism, ...

The purpose of this session is to open a discussion about connections, conflicts, and boundaries between Humanism and Posthumanism by exploring philosophical and literary scenarios in diverse ages of human artistic creativity and thinking, from the Renaissance to the Romanticism to the Postmodern. The session wishes to create a debate on the complexity of the interplay between Humanism and Posthumanism as a crucial issue of our time, and at the same time as a fundamental question that has crossed the entire history of human artistic and philosophical elaboration without geographical, epochal, cultural or linguistic distinctions. The current debate on the posthuman opened thanks to thinkers such as Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, Donna Haraway, and Peter Sloterdijk, and the reflections on the thin ridge between humanism and posthumanism, explored by Gilles Deleuze, Giorgio Agamben, and Rosi Braidotti, that also goes into the intersection with social and political theory, cultural politics, ...

On the ladder of evolution, near the rung of religion, you will find humanism. Its a fairly straightforward and simple philosophy, which is to its advantage. Typically humanism focuses on the value of human beings, and supports rational decisions that will improve the lives of humans as a whole. Which sounds great… if only the reality werent lacking. Unfortunately, like its sibling Philosophy, humanism is a ideology that has difficulty moving forward.. Humanists in the past likely would have found current medical techniques grotesque perversions of nature. Cutting someone open and placing technology within them? A defamation of what it means to be human, all those with pacemakers or cochlear implant should be put out of their unnatural (or is it unholy?) misery. Prosthesis? What value does life have when youre forced to live as an abomination to humankind. etc. (its unfair to put words in the mouths of the dead, but this is a realistic analysis.). Once a technology becomes mainstream (ie, ...
It also involves a fight against ableism, in as there is nothing especially ideal about the (young, muscular, male, white, healthy) human body. The Vitruvian Man, which was the very symbol of Humanism, was also a symbol of the intrinsically exclusionary nature of Humanism. Posthumanism and Transhumanism are also primarily an inclusionary process that explodes the exclusionary walls of Humanism, without negating its important values. The fact that Posthumanism and Transhumanism have moved beyond the Humanism tradition originating in Renaissance Humanism does not mean rejecting Humanism entirely: some of its basic foundations are also at the basis of both Anarchism (which is in essence a humanist philosophy) and Trans/Posthumanism. For example, one of the most important contributions of Humanism was replacing religious thinking, as a basis for ethical values, with a vision of ethics grounded in human rights. Accepting that we live in a world of natural phenomena, approached through science and ...

Neuroanthropology. Where does neuroanthropology work in comparison to this approach? In a broad sense, we are in large agreement - social causation, human development, daily experience, and neurobiological systems come together in important ways that lend insight into the human lifecourse, health and development, and our behavior. I like their attention to linking social causation, biological systems, and outcomes, and advocate that people interested in neuroanthropology pay close attention to that style of reasoning.. The differences are more in the conceptualization of specific problems. Addiction is not just a behavioral health outcome, it is something that is neuroanthropological in itself, involving subjective experience, social contexts, and biological systems. I undertake a similar sort analysis in my post, The Insidious, Elusive Becoming: Addiction in Four Steps. Similarly, concepts like stress and executive function are areas ripe for neuroanthropological analysis. Greg has already done ...

Out of the darkness a warm light - streaks of yellow, orange and red - like flickering flames, flowing lava or glowing embers. Amidst the gleaming flames the red figure of a person stretching their arms up high. The Happy Human, the international symbol of the humanistic organisations, stands on a most aesthetic centre stage. Several carefully positioned layers of painted glass create a three-dimensional setting with a spatial effect that a picture cannot capture. Standing before one of these works, the viewer becomes enmeshed in the depth of light that shines through symbols of peace and human rights.. ShineonHu is an art project that puts the practice of Humanism in focus. The creative and technical mind behind ShineonHu is the designer and visual artist Pete Stary. For over three years the humanist has been producing illuminated objects of art in his own atelier.

By A S Q Visser. The logo is likely one of the so much outstanding literary innovations of Renaissance humanism. The symbolic imagery awarded in those Neo-Latin logo books constituted an enormous effect on many parts in early glossy literature and artwork. This quantity presents the 1st finished research of Sambucus influential Emblemata (first released by way of Christopher Plantin, Antwerp, 1564). It reconstructs the cultural-historical contexts during which it used to be produced, therefore reconsidering the social and advertisement services of the humanist logo. observed by way of an in depth research of person trademarks, it takes under consideration the trademarks classical intertextuality and the connection among notice and picture. This research indicates how the emblematic perform can vary from modern image and brand theories, that have usually colored smooth interpretations of the genre. ...

Much has happened since the formulation and the publication of the Humanist Manifesto. Under able and vigorous leadership in this and other countries, Humanism has become an international stream of thought and commitment aiming at a basic revision of the human outlook and a revaluation of values. I still think the adjective, naturalistic, best symbolizes the perspective of religious Humanism since it calls attention to its rejection of supernaturalism. Modern naturalism is, inevitably, evolutionary in its premises. . . . As I see it, it is all a matter of accent. The essential thing is to have a common framework.. Is Humanism a religion, perhaps, the next great religion? Yes, it must be so characterized, for the word, religion, has become a symbol for answers to that basic interrogation of human life, the human situation, and the nature of things-which every human being, in some degree and in some fashion, makes. What can I expect from life? What kind of universe is it? Is there, as some say, a ...
These companies are managed as an integrated and responsive part of society and complement theoretical arguments on a humanistic management approach with proof of concept. They demonstrate that managerial freedom includes the option to align social purpose and business success.. Humanistic management has a profoundly liberating effect on a company by putting people first and integrating the desire to generate benefits for all stakeholders into managerial decision making. Consequently, internal as well as external stakeholders can derive meaning and find purpose in a companys activities that create value for society, making them loyal customers, engaged employees, long-term-oriented investors and collaborative civil society stakeholders. True business leadership proves that business success and societal benefit generation can go hand in hand.. With this book The Humanistic Management Network presents convincing evidence of businesses that stand out by showing that it is not only possible for ...
religious morality has been a partial bulwark against anarchy on the one hand, and the rise of totalitarian tyranny on the other. I have also expounded on this topic previously elsewhere.[30] This benefit is true also for other religions, particularly Buddhism [photo, left] and Hinduism, which have provided peace, moral guidance, and solace to an otherwise trying existence for countless millions in Asia and elsewhere over the centuries.. The length of this already quite extended historical review article precludes expounding on the possible effects of skepticism, angst, irreligion, and the stress and fast pace of modern life on the state of mind and mental health of contemporary society. Let me just remind the reader that mental illness, random violence and senseless crime have been on the rise concomitant with modern technological advances.[25,29,31] And as early as the 19th century through the mid-20th century, eminent psychoanalysts, Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) and Carl Jung (1875-1961); ...
The focus on secularity comes at a critical time for European social and political attitudes within a global context, in which many principles are fundamentally being challenged. In particular, the very European truce between secular humanism and religious traditions has come under increasing scrutiny, challenged both from within and without. The issue asks: has the search for mutual disambiguation, an exorcism of the ghost of the (belief of the) other, given rise to a profound lack of comprehension between cultures of belief and non-belief? Contributors examine the historical entanglement of secular humanisms and religious traditions, the forbearance of European religious history, and the ways in which majority religion in Europe has never been rid of challenges from other modes of life, religious or otherwise. Contributors also write from the context of Iran, Turkey, Russia and Congo to examine forms of religious hybridity and disputed spaces and representations of belief and secularity which ...
Jennings Brown at Vocative says left-leaning natural health sites were the pioneering sources of fake news, before the right-wing, pro-Trump wave of hoax reporting that consumed Facebook. Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention is an outspoken opponent of Trump, and its caused many evangelicals to turn against him. Jonathan Merritt says this is a bad idea, and from what I know of Moore, I agree with Merritt. I bet Moores smarter than anyone in the SBC who wants to push him aside. The Charity Commission for England and Wales decrees that Jediism is not a religion.

The Liaison Committee on Medical Education recently set standards for cultural diversity training as part of the medical school curriculum. To the authors knowledge, this is the first description of a faculty-development program designed to develop the capacity of the clinical faculty to integrate culture and advocacy education into clinical training. The paper describes the first two years of the development of an ongoing cultural competence curriculum that has been integrated into the training of community preceptors from 13 medical schools in New England and New York. The training, entitledTeaching the Culture of the Community, consists of four 2.5-hour modules that include interactive lectures and small-group role-play exercises on cultural needs assessment, patient-centered interviewing, feedback on cultural issues and use of the community to enhance cultural understanding. The 137 participants in the first two years of the program (1999-00 and 2000-01) reported a high level of acceptance of the

The article Towards an Applied Neuroanthropology of Psychosis: Interplay of Culture, Brains, and Experience by Myers, provided an ethnographic case study of a man diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and the events of his life that led to his diagnosis. In the interview, Leroy (the subject of study), discussed his upbringing. From birth he was label by his grandmother to have the veil over his eyes which culturally for her meant that he could see what others could not. In his childhood he saw things, and had dreams and so his aunt performed exorcisms to rid him of the spirits, which worked for him. But growing up poor with no way out of his situation led him to make poor decisions, that he knew were bad but did out of care for his friends. Eventually this led him to prison. In prison he was a model prisoner which ultimately led to his downfall, in which he was alienated. Eventually this stress triggered him to offend an officer who put him in solitary for 80 days. A man who had was prone ...

Rett Terrell is playing the title character in the Oklahoma-made short film The Grave. [Photo provided]. Perched in a tall chair and dressed in a snazzy suit, Rett Terrell sits still as makeup artist Krystal Rose McKinley dabs thick layers of black greasepaint around his eyes. Only the actors mouth is moving as he cracks wise through preparation for the lengthy final day of location filming on The Grave, an Oklahoma-made short film he waited two years to bring to life. Its definitely the eye makeup, Terrell jokes. No, when I was a kid, I grew up reading comic books and everything about this story spoke to me. Dressed in the olive-drab uniform and wide-brimmed hat of a World War I doughboy, Collin Place awaits his turn in the makeup chair, scanning his script as strong late afternoon sunshine beams through the wide windows of PhotoArt Studios in the Plaza District.

Widespread and evermore spreading love and affection for animals - dogs in particular - is understood to be a cultural achievement and a sign of advanced society as opposed to such hellholes where dogs are actually forbidden from participating at the family table.. In this ruthless attack on love towards innocent tail wagers we discern how sentimentality as a counterfeit of love is being at work as an ideal for human relations, why children love animals and why it is natural, whereas it is not so natural later on in life and why children are not and never can become wiser than grown ups (except in Spielbergs movies), what is Christian agape and why it has nothing to do with most things we call love today, especially not with sentimentality and how humanization of animals leads to animalization of humans.. ...
Social ecology begins with an exploration of the past in order to gain an epistemological understanding into how humanity defines, and thus constitutes, nature. This is a question of vital importance, not merely an exercise in philosophical abstraction. The way we conceptualize nature and humanitys place in nature has become a highly contentious issue in ecological thought and environmental philosophy. The conclusions that we draw will inform our ethics and the political decisions that shape our world. How can we derive such an epistemology? We must start out by understanding that nature is not a static entity but evolutionary, indeed, that the very process of biological evolution constitutes nature. The evolutionary record, natural history, is the reality of nature. From the molecular to the biospheric level, nature is in a process of constant flux and change: birth, death, mutation, even extinction are all part of a process which creates the complex web of life, of which humanity is a part. ...
The time has come for widespread recognition of the radical changes in religious beliefs throughout the modern world. The time is past for mere revision of traditional attitudes. Science and economic change have disrupted the old beliefs. Religions the world over are under the necessity of coming to terms with new conditions created by a vastly increased knowledge and experience. In every field of human activity, the vital movement is now in the direction of a candid and explicit humanism. In order that religious humanism may be better understood we, the undersigned, desire to make certain affirmations which we believe the facts of our contemporary life demonstrate.. There is great danger of a final, and we believe fatal, identification of the word religion with doctrines and methods which have lost their significance and which are powerless to solve the problem of human living in the Twentieth Century. Religions have always been means for realizing the highest values of life. Their end has been ...

Good luck with the future, was the last thing Margaret Atwood said to me, after Id shaken her hand and stammered profusely over what an honor it was to talk with her. She didnt mean my personal future; she meant the future of the planet and of the human race, the same future shes imagined so grimly in The Handmaids Tale and in her MaddAddam trilogy. She meant, basically, Good luck not dying because of global warming. It was an oddly touching sentiment. For Atwood herself, the future doesnt look too bad. Hulu has announced its plans to develop a second season of its critically acclaimed adaptation of The Handmaids Tale, Atwoods dystopian classic. Netflix recently announced that it would be getting in on the game with an adaptation of Alias Grace, Atwoods 1996 novel of murder and witchcraft.

Humanists love mankind and our universe, and believe that heaven is something for which we should work now - here on earth for all people together to enjoy.. Humanists believe that they can get no help from supernatural sources, but that they must find in themselves, with the support of others, the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to enjoy it, and to grapple with its problems and solve them.. Humanists believe that only in self knowledge, knowledge of our earthly home, and knowledge of humanity can people find the understanding that will help them to live a life of fulfillment.. We seek to know ourselves, our world, and our fellow man rather than to know a god. We believe that a hospital should be built instead of a church. We believe that a deed must be done instead of a prayer said. A Humanist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. We want disease conquered, poverty vanquished, war eliminated, and clean air, water, and earth for all. We want people to understand ...
Returning to universalization as possibly a reference to [Unitarian-]Universalism, Olson writes that universalization (& by extension humanism) feeds into a class of deteriorated/personal lives anyway, giving them/what they can buy, a cheap/belief. Those words, cheap/belief, might lead us to see the poem as a critique of Unitarian-Universalism but what then might he mean by writing that the cheap belief is what they can buy? I feel Im on sturdier ground when I read the cheap belief as a belief in consumerism. (Eliding the argument quite a bit, it might be said that in the big false humanism causal mythology is replaced by a belief in products, that which can be bought?that which is advertised on the billboards Olson so often attacks {his windmills?}.) After all, Olson follows cheap/belief by writing about The corner magazine store (though to be honest I?m not sure what he means by essential room and programs. {My Butterick is out on loan somewhere, so Im flying solo.} ...

Ive thought a lot about this (having been vegan for the last twenty-three years), and it has been of some concern to me, because I do buy a lot of imported beans, nuts and seeds. However, while its true that our climate is not (yet!) suitable for growing a lot of those foods, there are some beans, nuts and seeds that do grow here, and probably a lot more that could. For example, between 110,000 and 170,000 hectares of land is used for growing field beans in this country. At a yield of 3.75 tonnes per hectare, thats around 400,000 to 600,000 tonnes of beans a year. And what happens to them? Theyre fed to livestock. Some of them are exported to Middle Eastern countries for human consumption (UK Agriculture). I did buy a packet from a health food shop in Putney in around 1993, and they were perfectly good to eat, but Ive not seen them for sale since ...

Because of Secular Humanisms rejection of faith in favor of reason and science, and its high valuation of curiosity and critical thought, it follows that their ideas of the mind, consciousness and identity are similarly inspired. While there is no established position among Humanists about precisely what that entails, many have explored the subject in depth and turn to both science and philosophy in search of answers. Generally speaking, Humanists reject the idea that there is a self that is separable from our physical being. They hold that humanity is part of the natural world and, therefore, subject to the same evolutionary processes that govern other life-forms. Our identities are the cumulative results of biological, social and cultural forces and individual experiences.. ...
Enter the Modern Era. Some trace the roots of this era back as far as the Renaissance, however it strengthened during the Enlightenment Period of the late 1700s and hit its peak in the late 1800s which is known as the Modernist Period in literature and art. The secular worldview of this era is based on science and reason, and it trusts only what can be evaluated by the five senses. Life was governed by logical principles and ethics. God was seen as distant or absent, and man became the final authority. Authority structures were clear. Its obvious that the inherent atheism and secular humanism were diametrically opposed to a Christian worldview. But, what is not clear is how elements of this mindset seeped into Christianity as well. If you look at traditional churches even today, you might find the same modernist attention to hierarchical structures, emphasis on law, and rejection of the supernatural to a degree that is not Biblical ...
Rushdie the cosmopolitan is a defender of an idea even less fashionable, at the moment, than moral relativism -- secular humanism. Its a cause some of our best thinkers, such as Hitchens and Martin Amis, are increasingly taking up. Though hardly politically expedient, the fight against religions tyranny makes intellectual and emotional sense right now. It could even replace the struggle against first-world imperialism as the organizing principle of radical thought, encompassing as it does the fight against the lunatics of al-Qaida, the butchers in Gujarat, the hard-line settlers in the West Bank, the rapists in the Catholic Church, the bombers of abortion clinics and, of course, our own attorney general.. Amis said it best in a June essay for the Guardian: Since it is no longer permissible to disparage any single faith or creed, let us start disparaging all of them. To be clear: an ideology is a belief system with an inadequate basis in reality; a religion is a belief system with no basis in ...
Its important to see that Pinker is unreliable, and not simply a neutral presenter of The Data, because his books are bestsellers and are widely praised as brilliant. Yet they reinforce many right-wing talking points and accepting some of their conclusions would have extremely destructive political consequences. I actually agree with perhaps 80 percent or more of what is contained in Enlightenment Now, insofar as it is simply presenting statistics showing that crime has dropped and we are not presently in a world war, or making arguments for secular humanism and democracy. But he also (1) staunchly defends the inequality produced by free-market capitalism, (2) is irrationally dismissive of the scale of the risks facing humankind, (3) trivializes present-day human pain and suffering, (4) whitewashes U.S. crimes and minimizes the dangers of U.S. military aggression, (5) repeats right-wing smears about anti-racist and feminist ideas, and (6) has a colossal ignorance about the workings of politics ...
I recently read the article NEUROPHYSIOLOGICAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, SPORT AND HEALTH DIMENSIONS OF THREE MEDITATION TECHNIQUES written by Richard M. Buscombe.. The main thing that I found useful from this article was the description of several types of meditation. There was breath based meditation, concentrative meditation, and mindfulness meditation. I was particularly interested in the concentrative meditation, which involves developing a focus using a mental device, such as a mantra, body sensation, breath, or specific image. Specifically, I was intrigued by Transcendental Meditation, which utilizes a mantra, which is a word or saying that is repeated in a rhythmic cycle. I hypothesize that there could be a similarity between this form of meditation and addiction seeking behavior. Addicts focus on one thing, which is their addiction. Is it possible that this focus is similar to the focus on a mantra in meditation?. Additionally, there were some data collection techniques that might be useful. ...
It might come as a surprise to some people that intelligence is not as hard-wired as some of our teachers made us think back in grade school.

The transformative potential of the posthuman is undeniable.. Technoscientific cultures, global economic challenges, looming environmental disaster, the spread of digitalisation, the rise of biomedia and the erosion of traditional demarcations between human and nonhuman all call for alternative ways of thinking about humanity and its environments.. Posthumanism is a paradigm emerging from the challenges to humanism, humanity and the human that these developments pose. It responds to anthropocentrism, speciesism and biopolitics, and informs new creative practices like bioart and electronic literature. It impacts institutional changes across the life sciences, new media, the digital humanities and the posthumanities. It reflects the ways in which peoples lives are reshaped in the embracing of digital lifestyles, virtualisation and moves towards various kinds of prosthesization and human enhancement.. Critical posthumanism investigates and contextualizes the transformative potential of these ...
Scientism achieved its grotesque extreme in the philosophy of Behavioral Psychology of Watson and Skinner. They denied the very existence of volitional human consciousness because it could not be seen, smelt or measured. Mind for them was a meaningless word because it could not be scientifically described. Behavior on the other hand could be observed, described and statistically measured. Science, the first humanity (science being the basis of Enlightenment Humanism) was now transformed into Scientism, which denied the very humanity of humanity (that is if we accept that what separates the human from the animal is the volitional reasoning mind). This became grist for the mill of post-modernists who denied that reason was an universal objective human characteristic but was rather an ideological construct of western culture; who denied that reason had any intrinsic objective value and who affirmed that non-rational, irrational and even anti-rational ways of relating to reality should be treated ...
This is my conclusion as well. Leftist humanism does not view humanity in biological terms. It views us at a social level only, with its back against nature. Biology becomes a secondary background nuisance, and is seen as a burden. This reflects the fact that humanity itself has stepped outside of and circumvented nature, through technological escapism. At face-value, we are ascribed a biological nature, as objects, but as biological reality is in fact circumvented as well as conspired against, Left-ism becomes Spiritual in an inversed kind of way. Biology, and even the climate, is indeed to be overcome, as the world turns into an anthropocentric playground of controlled environments, where nature is a mere environmental landscape that no longer haunts us. This is what sustainable development seems to mean in spiritual terms. And I think you have brought up this before - that the Establishment carries a hidden transhumanistic Spiritual agenda, under the guise of scientific ...
In addition to high levels of academic achievement, medical schools look for many traits in applicants, including motivation, evidence of humanism, responsibility, maturity, leadership, breadth of interests, and ability to manage multiple tasks. You may develop these attributes in activities beyond the classroom. We encourage you to participate actively but not to substitute activities for academic excellence. Moreover, a list of organization memberships means little to experienced committees. A committee will want to know what you contributed to organizations and activities.. Ball State has many volunteer activities. For more information contact the Student Volunteer Services office.. Community activities that relate to social concerns or health issues, such as adult day care centers, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the Community Kitchen, Habitat for Humanity, hospice, and many more, may be of particular interest if you are pursuing a health care profession.

What is Clinical Excellence? Clinical excellence is performing at a level well above satisfactory-both qualitatively and decisively. When our physicians achieve a level of mastery in communication and interpersonal skills, professionalism and humanism, and negotiation of the healthcare system, we recognize and reward them.
Until European travel becomes fully open to Americans, heres a reminder of the fun that awaits us in Europe. Martin Luther - a pious monk and fiery orator who became the Great Reformer - came from a humble, pastoral corner of Germanys heartland. Its a land of half-timbered villages, rolling hills, and fanciful castles - and where Luthers bold attempts to reform the Catholic Church launched the Protestant Reformation. October 2017 marked the 500th anniversary of this event, which, along with the Renaissance and as part of the rise of humanism, contributed greatly to the birth of our modern world.. On Oct. 31, 1517, Luther challenged Roman Catholic doctrine by posting his 95 Theses (discussion topics) on a church door. This started a chain of events that would split Western Christian faith, plunge Europe into a century of warfare, cause empires to rise and fall, and inspire new schools of art and thought. In eastern Germany, near Leipzig, three Lutherland destinations - Erfurt, Wartburg ...
Spirituality is recognized as a factor that contributes to health in many persons. The concept of spirituality is found in all cultures and societies. It is expressed in an individuals search for ultimate meaning through participation in religion and/or belief in God, family, naturalism, rationalism, humanism and the arts. All these factors can influence how patients and health care professionals perceive health and illness and how they interact with one another.. (The Association of American Medical Colleges Medical School Objectives Report III, 1999.). ...
In an email response from Anthony and a blog comment from my son, Gabriel, we exposed what I find to be a quintessential dichotomy with profound implications, a crucial discussion. The accepted secular wisdom based in pervasive skeptical humanism is that there is an irreconcilable divide between science and religion. This antagonism is promulgated and encouraged by the science only coterie and is depicted as the enlightened modern mind vs the deluded ancient superstitions of the ill-informed.. Ive read Carl Sagan, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and others, but personally found their explanations dissatisfying and smug. Sagan proclaims at the beginning of the popular Cosmos television series (and follow up book) of the eighties[i]The cosmos is all there is, or was, or ever shall be. Neil de Grasse Tyson recently updated the series for PBS to great acclaim. He, too, subscribes to a philosophical structure called Naturalism, which holds that everything that exists is within one ...
While reforming my faith, accepting Christ, against the hard knock of agnosticism, humanism, and atheism, I noticed a perilous, parallel philosophical journey taken by C.S. Lewis in response to his own battle with his Christian walk. Lewis constantly retained an admiring endearment to his teacher, W. T. Kirkpatrick, or as Lewis calls him, The Great Knock.. Like Lewis, I also admired my atheistic and agnostic philosophers and teachers during my higher education, for their logical rationality and their pervasive intellect.. Like Lewis, I also read such atheistic thinkers like Bertrand Russell (A Free Mans Worship; Why I am not a Christian), Paul Kurtz (A Humanist Manifesto), Kai Nelson (Ethics without God), Sigmund Freud (The Future of an Illusion), Karl Marx (Das Kapitel), Friedrich Nietzche (Human, All too Human), and B.F. Skinner (Beyond Freedom and Dignity). I even attended a debate at The University of Texas, Austin, between atheist Madeline OHare and a Unitarian minister. I was ...

Personal Construct Psychotherapy contains contributions from most of the leading international practitioners in the field. It will not only be of interest to psychotherapists, other clinicians, academics, and students who are already familiar with personal construct theory or constructivism, but also to those who are seeking a therapeutic approach which is integrative but has a clear theoretical rationale, and which is able to combine humanism with rigor.
My biggest surprise in reading Steven Pinkers new book was how good it was for my mental health! Searching for a bit of hope in these challenging times, I emerged with a clearer view and more strength to work for human rights. Pinker is a vigorous counter point to those who like to say nothing has changed.Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism and Progress (2018) takes the reader on a global tour of human progress over centuries to our present day. He assesses inequality, education, health, violence, human rights, the environment and other factors with the best data available. In my view, how could our optimism NOT increase if we take a little time to consider the very positive trends he describes?In his chapter on Progressophobia, Pinker presents us with two shockers: the world has made spectacular progress in every single measure of human well-being and almost no one knows about it. For example, 83% of the worlds population is now literate, including 91% of those ...
This article was originally posted on The Conversation.. British society is in serious need of higher levels of religious literacy. The potential for misunderstanding, stereotyping and oversimplification based on ignorance is huge - and schools have a big part to play in putting this right.. Religion has dramatically changed in Britain. Fewer people profess Christianity, more profess a post-Christian spirituality, humanism or atheism, while Muslim, Sikh, Hindu and Jewish communities assert themselves in public and seek to play a role in shaping policies.. Yet the degree of understanding of these faith actors and of religion in general is low. The need for investment in religious literacy is one of the main themes of the Commission on Religion and Belief in British Public Life (CORAB), which has just published a report called Living With Difference - in which I was involved as a member of the steering group. As religious literacy and experience of diversity begins at school, we have recommended ...

he aim of this paper is defining the role and place of charity in the contemporary society based on the value analysis. Charity is considered an important aspect of the principle of humanism. On one side, it is morally desirable to expand charity because it is not right to accept passively the presence of human distress and suffering, but at the same time, charity should not interfere with the functioning of the society as a whole. There is a definition of the idea of a good society, which should become a higher criterion of moral goodness ...
David: I wanted to bring to life the protagonist of Pilots of Borealis, Clinton Rittener. Hes someone that is impossible to meet without making a deep impression. There arent too many characters in literature-in science fiction or any other genre-like him, at all. Yet, science fiction is the only place where a Clinton Rittener could be crafted. Hes an embodiment of the kind of human being that might be forged in the confluence of multiple and ferocious perfect storms, but the product of tempests that can only take place in the future. Only science fiction is wide enough for this most unlikely of candidates to be thrust into such a terrifying crucible. But hes very much at the same time a man of our century too, especially the young Rittener, with his superlative achievements in mathematics, linguistics, science and diplomacy. The tattered remnants of that same humanism is nonetheless the foundation for how the horrific challenges sculpt one of the most dangerous, stony, lethal mercenaries in ...

Sherwood said she will take advantage of her fellowship to make a series of mixed-media paintings incorporating digital images of cerebral angiograms - including her own - with copies of images of neuroanatomy produced by 16th-century anatomist Andreas Vesalius and artist Jan Stefan van Kalkar. The simultaneous use of these widely disparate views suggests two revolutionary moments in our understanding and representations of the brain, wrote Sherwood in her Guggenheim proposal. Those moments, she said, are the advent of a Western medical humanism that underscored the importance of understanding through dem-onstration and late-20th-century advances in medical technology that rely on a dematerialized, remote image of the human body.. The purpose of this body of work is to reapply the use of such images towards an exploration of the spiritual vis-a-vis medical imaging technologies, Sherwood said in her proposal.. She said the work also will expand her research for Art, Medicine, and ...

The evolution from Freudian analysis to Jung and Adler, to Skinners Behavioralism, to Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslows Humanism to Rollo Mays inclusion of Existentialism, to Cognitive-Behaviorism, and Interpersonal Neurophysiology, to Spiritual Psychology, Positive Psychology, Mindfulness-Based approaches and Solution-Focused Therapies has been essential to our gaining a whole understanding of how to help people heal their insides. That is a compacted list, and says nothing about other fields of science and technology, nor about art, philosophy, music, politics, and cultural commentary. As an integrationist, I look to all these sources and try to synthesize a treatment approach tailored to the specifics of each person. It would be easier to adopt a single view and widely apply it. However, history and Reason disallow that. Today, we have the benefit of all that we know, and all that we know we dont know. The myth that somehow there will be one single idea that will be a cure-all has to be ...
