Humanism is a way of thinking about the world. In modern times, humanism is close to secularism. It refers to a non-theistic approach to life, looking to science instead of religious dogma in order to understand the world. The term was made widely known by scientists in the mid-20th century.

A true Humanist lives according to the Golden Rule of Humanism, which means trying to empathize with other people, including those who may be very different from us, thinking differently from us, having beliefs we don’t have, etc.

“Humanists recognize that it is only when people feel free to think for themselves, using reason as their guide, that they are best capable of developing values that succeed in satisfying human needs and serving human interests:” Isaac Asimov
