Humanism and the Renaissance are an era of transition between the Middle Ages and the modern age. During the Renaissance, people became less "God Centered" and more "Human-Centered." In previous history, art was used by the church to educate the illiterate. Even if the church did not commission the artists, they often choose to depict biblical... .. An Introduction to the Philosophy of Mind: Souls, Science and Human Beings.

God cannot as a rule intervene whenever man�s use of freedom displeases him.. . The Parasite. It is not mere coincidence that the term huminista only made its appearance after the political battle was beginning to be won (c.1490) and Renaissance Humanism felt confident enough to split up into the smaller specialised fields of study After Death, What?/ (Theosophical Manual). These considerations provide the framework for humanist moral thinking about particular issues. Mutuality is in fact fundamental to all morality, as is seen in the universality of the Golden Rule. All religions and all ethical systems include the Golden Rule. It is the rule of behaving to others as you would wish them to behave to you. The Golden Rule surfaces and resurfaces across the world and across time as a central proposition – which, incidentally, implies strongly that religions and non-religious beliefs and law codes are all influenced by the same ultimate facts around us – in fact, that morality has influenced religion more than religion has influenced morality When Species Meet (Posthumanities). Intellectuals rebelled, in some cases establishing new churches to compete with Catholicism, in other cases working to divorce the church from the political power structures it had used so successfully for centuries to control the population.

At the Meadville school, as I climbed the stairs to my assigned room in Divinity Hall, I encountered three students who had packed their bags and were already leaving at the beginning of the term. I was told, "We are humanists and the faculty has made it clear that our presence is not appreciated." Humanists therefore recognize that we live in a natural universe of great size and age, that we evolved on this planet over a long period of time, that there is no compelling evidence for a separable "soul," and that human beings have certain built-in needs that effectively form the basis for any human-oriented value system Re-Thinking the Cogito: Naturalism, Reason and the Venture of Thought (Bloomsbury Studies in Philosophy).

In defending their beliefs from exposure to ideas inconsistent with them, such fundamentalists label evolution as "humanism" and maintain that exclusive teaching of it in the science classroom constitutes a breech in the Jeffersonian wall of separation between church and state A TRAVELLER IN LITTLE THINGS..

A lot of what we call feminism today is focused on getting rid of that whole problematic patriarchy thing that not a lot of other –isms are centered on resisting. Although feminism has partially been about getting women a more equal share of power, it must also acknowledge the ways in which patriarchy plays a role in all kinds of social ills: racism, homophobia, and xenophobia, to name a few Ten Problems of Consciousness: A Representational Theory of the Phenomenal Mind (Representation and Mind).

The “city” provides the environment — a public space — for human fulfillment Lessons of the Masters (Charles Eliot Norton Lectures). The limitations were acknowledged privately by intellectuals, but publicly, reason seemed to be making serious inroads into the view that religion ultimately had little to offer philosophically.
