List of humanists History of humanism Renaissance Germany France Humanist Manifesto ... e Humanism is a broad category of ethical philosophies that affirm the dignity and worth of all people, based on the ability to determine right and wrong by appeal to universal human qualities — particularly rationality It is a component of a variety of more specific philosophical systems and is incorporated into several religious schools of thought. Humanism entails a commitment to the search for truth and morality through human means in support of human interests. In focusing on the capacity for self-determination, humanism rejects the validity of transcendental justifications, such as a dependence on belief without reason , the supernatural , or texts of allegedly divine origin.

history many individuals and groups have affirmed the inherent value and dignity of human beings. They have spoken out against ideologies, beliefs and practices which held people to be merely the means for accomplishing economic and political ends. They have reminded their contemporaries that the purpose of institutions is to serve and advance the freedom and power of their members. In Western civilization we honor the times and places, such as Classical Greece and Europe of the Renaissance, when such affirmations were expressed. Humanistic Psychology is a contemporary manifestation of that ongoing commitment. Its message is a response to the denigration of the human spirit that has so often been implied in the image of the person drawn by behavioral and social sciences. During the first half of the twentieth century, American psychology was dominated by two schools of thought: behaviorism and psychoanalysis. Neither fully acknowledged the possibility of studying values, intentions and meaning as elements in conscious existence. Although various European perspectives such as phenomenology had some limited influence, on the whole mainstream American psychology had been captured by the mechanistic beliefs of behaviorism and by the biological reductionism and determinism of classical psychoanalysis. The "Second Force" emerged out of Freudian psychoanalysis and the depth psychologies of Alfred Adler, Erik Erikson, Erich Fromm, Karen Horney, Carl Jung, Melanie Klein, Otto Rank, Harry Stack Sullivan and others. These theorists focused on the dynamic unconscious - the depths of the human psyche whose contents, they asserted, must be integrated with those of the conscious mind in order to produce a healthy human personality . The founders of the depth psychologies believed (with several variations) that human behavior is principally determined by what occurs in the unconscious mind. So, where the behaviorists ignored consciousness because they felt that its essential privacy and subjectivity rendered it inaccessible to scientific study, the depth psychologists tended to regard it as the relatively superficial expression of unconscious drives.

Welcome to the world of Humanistic Judaism. This organized branch of Judaism is for Jews wishing to maintain their Jewish identity in a non-theistic manner through congregations and communities. Humanistic Judaism differs from secular or cultural Judaism in that it is congregational in form and substance. Jewish education, holidays, tradition and life cycle events are the foundation of Humanistic Judaism. While the important role of God in Jewish history and tradition is recognized, and spirituality is greatly valued, Humanistic Judaism holds that supernatural authority should play no role in human affairs; the branch is non-theistic in observance and content. Humanistic Judaism was founded by Rabbi Sherwin Wine in the 1960's. Its formal organization is carried out by The Society for Humanistic Judaism. which has many affiliated communities in the U.S. and other countries. This page is operated by Walter Hellman as an independent service for all Humanistic Jews, both affiliated and unaffiliated. While the primary purpose of this page and the associated mailing list (see below) is to further the advancment of Humanisitic Judaism, the page and its contents do not necessarily represent the views of the Society for Humanistic Judaism.

About the Mellon Fellowships Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the fellowships were, for more than two decades, the only consistently available national fellowship for humanities doctoral study, providing a year of full graduate tuition and (in recent years) a $17,500 stipend to approximately 85 first-year doctoral students annually.
The Mellon Foundation suspended the Humanistic Studies Fellowship program at the conclusion of the 2005-06 academic year in order to explore new directions in funding for higher education. In announcing the suspension of the program, Mellon Foundation president William Bowen and vice president Harriet Zuckerman stated: Nancy Malkiel, chair of the Woodrow Wilson Board of Trustees, said about the program: The more than 2,000 Mellon Fellows bring enormous benefits not only to higher education, but to the vitality and strength of intellectual and civic leadership in the nation as a whole. The Woodrow Wilson Foundation has been proud to partner with Mellon in this important endeavor, and we look forward to a continued productive partnership as Mellon sets its new course under Don Randel, an honorary Woodrow Wilson Fellow (1962), who will assume the Mellon presidency in July 2006.

Program subjects are arranged by four areas: exposition and rhetoric, creative writing, science writing and technical communication. In each area introductory subjects lead to more specialized advanced subjects. Introductory subjects are designed for students with little experience in writing. Advanced subjects are for students who have mastered the elements of sentence and paragraph structure. A number of the advanced subjects use writing as a vehicle to explore humanistic and scientific issues in a broad cultural context.

Introduction to the Humanistic Approach
The Humanistic Approach began in response to concerns by therapists against perceived limitations of Psychodynamic theories, especially psychoanalysis. Individuals like Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow felt existing (psychodynamic) theories failed to adequately address issues like the meaning of behavior, and the nature of healthy growth. However, the result was not simply new variations on psychodynamic theory, but rather a fundamentally new approach. There are several factors which distinguish the Humanistic Approach from other approaches within psychology, including the emphasis on subjective meaning, a rejection of determinism , and a concern for positive growth rather than pathology. While one might argue that some psychodynamic theories provide a vision of healthy growth (including Jung's concept of individuation ), the other characteristics distinguish the Humanistic Approach from every other approach within psychology (and sometimes lead theorists from other approaches to say the Humanistic Approach is not a science at all). Most psychologists believe that behavior can only be understood objectively (by an impartial observer), but the humanists argue that this results in concluding that an individual is incapable of understanding their own behaviora view which they see as both paradoxical and dangerous to well-being. Instead, humanists like Rogers argue that the meaning of behavior is essentially personal and subjective; they further argue that accepting this idea is not unscientific, because ultimately all individuals are subjective: what makes science reliable is not that scientists are purely objective, but that the nature of observed events can be agreed upon by different observers (a process Rogers calls

In this orientation the basic concern is for human growth. We look to the work of Maslow and Rogers as expressions of this approach.
A great deal of the theoretical writing about adult education in the 1970s and 1980s drew on humanistic psychology. In this orientation the basic concern is for the human potential for growth. As Mark Tennant notes, the concern with ‘self’ is ‘a hallmark of humanistic psychology’ (1997: 12). There was a reaction against ‘scientific’ reductionism – people being treated as objects and rationalism. Instead the affective and subjective world was to be reaffirmed. Personal freedom, choice, motivations and feelings had to have their place. Perhaps the best known example is Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of motivation. At the lowest level are physiological needs, at the highest self actualization. Only when the lower needs are met is it possible to fully move on to the next level. A motive at the lower level is always stronger than those at higher levels. Tennant (1997) summarizes these as follows: Level one: Physiological needs such as hunger, thirst, sex, sleep, relaxation and bodily integrity must be satisfied before the next level comes into play.

Secular humanistic Jews understand Judaism as the humancentered history, culture, civilization, ethical values, and shared fate of the Jewish people.
Secular Humanistic Jews understand Judaism as the human-centered history, culture, civilization, ethical values, and shared experience of the Jewish people. For us, the message of Jewish history is that we have the power and the responsibility to take control of our own lives. Today, more than ever, secular Jews need a collective voice. This voice is expressed worldwide by The International Federation of Secular Humanistic Jews, which links national organizations in Israel, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Australia, France, Belgium, Italy and the countries of the former Soviet Union. The goals of the Federation and our constituent organizations are to reach out to secular Jews and offer communities where we can affirm our Judaism, celebrate our Jewish identity, educate our children about their rich and vibrant heritage, and fully participate in Jewish life.

Humanistic anthropology seeks to bring the intellectual resources of the discipline to bear upon this subject. While not blind to the constraints within which we humans operate, humanistic anthropology, in the tradition of the discipline, celebrates that human reality is something upon which we creative primates have real feedback effects: we can change our social and natural environment. Accordingly, it recognizes that anthropological inquiry constitutes a part of that work, particularly in promoting multicultural understanding and revealing the social blockages that are deleterious to our social and physical environment. The Society for Humanistic Anthropology was founded at the 1974 meeting of the American Anthropological Association in Mexico City. Membership is open to all who share an enthusiasm for both humans and anthropology. The Society meets annually as a section of the American Anthropological Association.
