Humanism: An Introduction
Format: Kindle Edition|Change

on 12 May 2012
A fascinating subject matter. Written very clearly and objectively. An easy read along the lines of live and let live. Putting over points without decring religious beliefs.
No problems with order.

Very good outline of what humanism is. Don’t expect anything too in-depth. Herrick seems to be of the opinion that humanism is an atheist only club. Not necessarily true. Or perhaps he simply wishes to mainly focus on atheistic humanism.

Aside from that it is a very good read and very though provoking. I recommend it

This book delivers what it promises: a clear, concise presentation of the humanist outlook. As a general introduction, it poses many of the questions that humanists grapple with: What are good and evil? Should neo-Nazis be given the right to free speech? Is the value of nuclear power greater than the risk of pollution or accident? Should RE in schools be abolished? Should someone who wishes to die be helped to do so? But appropriately, given its aim and scope, it leaves the deeper exploration of these problems to other writers. Well organised into short chapters focusing on separate aspects of the topic – e.g. humanism and morality, humanism and science, humanism and the environment – it's lucid, informative, open-minded and fair, and a useful springboard to further exploration.
