Every day, the world sees suffering caused by dogma, ignorance and intolerance. Humanism presents an alternative, a life stance and social movement based on reason, knowledge and genuine concern for human well-being. It promotes the idea that the challenges of modern life are best addressed by our intellectual, moral and social capabilities, free from notions of supernatural purpose. Humanitarian and community-oriented, valuing both the sciences and the arts, humanism holds that it is human thought and action that bring meaning and purpose to our lives.

Voices of Humanism is a collection of writing that demonstrates humanistic thinking - independent, compassionate, rational and constructive explorations of various matters of human importance. The book is edited by Gary Bauslaugh, structured around the seven tenets of humanism, as defined by the International Humanist and Ethical Union.
