This book is written to provide a quick overview of the philosophy of Humanism for the average Joe or Jane. I don’t care which actually because I’m a Humanist and I don’t judge people based on their gender or skin color or any other arbitrary characteristic. So, let’s revise that introductory statement. This book is for the average human, regardless of his or her name, who wants to learn more about Humanism.

What is Humanism? Humanism is a highly effective approach to human development. It is as much concerned with personal development as it is with social responsibility. In fact it is probably the most humane and holistic approach to ethical philosophy humanity has ever devised.

Humanism is one of the most influential and yet most maligned philosophies of all time. Unfortunately, most people don’t know anything about it. To make matters worse, there are a lot of people who are already Humanists and just don’t know it yet because no one has ever taken the time to properly introduce them to the philosophy. 

I intend to change that with this book. Consider yourself introduced.
