By Thomas Meacham. This is a truly paradigm-shifting study that reads a key text in Latin Humanist studies as the culmination, rather than an early .

      Christian Humanism, at least as I come at it, has more in common with the secular humanist than the religious humanist, approaching reality in a very pragmatic way, dismissing any notion of deity, grounding ethics in an arbitrary choice to use the teachings of the man Jesus as a starting point for ethical consideration, and basing what little. The Humanist seeks the enjoyment of as many of these as possible. In this, we are clearly at one with the ancient Greek ideal of wholeness and the integration of life.

CHRISTIANITY AND THE HUMANIST TRADITION. by Christopher Dawson. The present age has seen a great slump in humanist values.
