Forbidden Fruit: The Ethics of Humanism
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungHow does uncritical devotion to scripture limit human ethical development? What are the dangers of fundamentalist thinking? Why do most traditional religions fear examination and freethought? Why is a new ethic so important if we are to fulfill our potential? Feast your ears on the answers to these provocative questions in the audiotape version of Forbidden Fruit: The Ethics of Humanism.Fundamentalists of all religious persuasions would have us believe that morality is impossible without belief in God. Paul Kurtz, America's leading secular humanist philosopher, affirms that it is not only possible but that such an approach can lead to a higher ethical level. We must be nourished by the "forbidden fruit", the knowledge of good and evil, if we are to make informed choices. We must also eat from the tree of life to discover significant moral values to guide our conduct and develop our potential for a bountiful existence. This path leads to self-reliant conduct and consideration for the rights of others.
