Ethical Humanism 201, with Richard Kiniry
A three-part workshop with EHSoP Leader Emeritus Richard Kiniry will offer an opportunity for members of the Society to go deeper into Ethical Humanist philosophy. The workshop will first examine the intellectual history and the core beliefs, then look at what those ideas mean in our personal life and in the area of social justice. Ethical Humanism "has a hstory situated on the fringe of religion and its approach is of use to both the confused and to the know-it-alls," Kiniry says. The workshop is free for members, $15 for non-members. Register directly with Richard by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thursdays, April 2, 9, 30, 7:00-8:30 PM.
