Humanism is a rational philosophy, informed by science and experience, inspired by art and motivated by compassion. Humanism affirms our abilty and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity. Humanism affirms the dignity of each human being, supports liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility, derives goals of life from human need and interests rather than theological or ideological abstractions and asserts that humanity must take responsibility for its own destiny.
