The Origins And Future Of Humanism
A.C. Grayling is a renowned professor, philosopher and author and he joins Uncommon Sense to discuss the talk that he delivered at The Wheeler Centre on the origins and future of humanism. Described as a “non-religious, secular and ethical outlook” Professor Grayling discusses how he believes humanism is more of an attitude as opposed to a set of “dos and don’ts”. He also highlights the differences between ethics and morality and why it is important to distinguish these differences. He then chats about his latest two books The Age of Genius: The Seventeenth Century and the Birth of the Modern Mind which was released last year, and War: An Enquiry which came out last week.
