Modern Humanist Philosophy in the US: Building on Scientific Critique of Theism

 

ABSTRACT:

 

The critique of theism and the scientific outlook of pragmatic naturalism were at the foundation of modern humanist philosophy. This presentation illuminates early ideas that have persisted and those that have fallen out of favor. The result is a clearer picture of the position that humanist philosophy takes on such issues as the mind-body question, the problem of evil, emergence of cognitive life forms, pluralism and relativism, and humanist values generally. At the same time, it points out ambiguities that indicate a need for further development of the philosophy.
