Humanism Evolves: Religious to Secular

 

ABSTRACT:

 

The founders of modern humanist philosophy purposely mirrored scientific views of reality. While keeping room for a nontheist religious view of humanism, humanist philosophers over the ensuing decades debated what that religious element consisted of, and what values came from science. They thereby established a world view designed to evolve as human understanding changes. As a result, humanist philosophy has changed with changes in understanding. The change in the predominant viewpoint among humanist philosophers from religious humanism to scientific humanism to secular humanism profoundly illustrate this dynamic.
