  • Issue 130 - Humanism, humanitarianism, and humaneness
    • Abstract: Hotchin, Peter
      Humanness is not humaneness. It is not, for the obvious reason that some people in their very humanness are decidedly inhumane. But there are also many people who are humane, and it is the contention of this essay that such people will generally subscribe either to humanism or to humanitarianism, or to both. The relationship between humanism and humanitarianism is the subject of this essay.

  • Issue 130 - Does science disprove free will'
    • Abstract: Allan, Leslie
      The modern scientific view of the world paints human beings as an integral part of nature. Over the last century or so, a number of areas of scientific enquiry have provided independent and mutually supporting evidence that human beings are subject to the same physical, chemical and biological forces as inanimate objects. These disciplines include physics, neuroscience, pharmacology, evolutionary biology, developmental psychology and artificial intelligence. On this view, our hopes, desires, beliefs and values all have a biological basis that can be explained using physical models and natural laws.

  • Issue 130 - India's forgotten humanist
    • Abstract: Mall, Sangeeta
      Two years ago I went to Edinburgh and took a picture of the statue of David Hume, while I did what all tourists who've heard of Hume do - rub his toe. It's debatable whether the act brought me luck, but it did arouse in me a sort of wistfulness. The statue of a renowned atheist and rationalist adorns the most prime real estate in all of Scotland. When would India immortalise one of its towering thinkers, a pioneer of modern philosophy, in a similar manner' The vision of a statue of M. N. Roy looming over Gateway of India in Mumbai or India Gate in Delhi is almost laughable. Yet Roy's contribution to Indian thought is unique for being derived not merely from research, but also practical experience, and for amalgamating Indian thought with Western practice to articulate an indigenous, yet modern, vision of India.

  • Issue 130 - Achilles heel of the enlightenment
    • Abstract: Bien, Victor
      The self-interest of people-at-large is the Achilles heel of the Enlightenment. And as we know, the Enlightenment enabled and led to the industrial revolution which has transformed the world. There are a number of ways to illustrate this truism; probably one of the most well-known is the statistics which show growth in preindustrial times basically as a flat line. However, once the industrial revolution was under way many statistics began to rise up steeply as growth and production rose. This results in a 'hockey stick' graph which first came to my attention when described by climate change deniers.

      The humanist society of south australia is excited to be co-hosting the 2018 Australian Humanist Convention on April 13-14 in Adelaide. The theme, 'Equality is for Everyone', will focus on human rights and the need for equality.

  • Issue 129 - Refugees - breaking the canberra stalemate
    • Abstract: Bain, Kevin
      My presentation to the Australian Humanist Convention, April 2017, attempted a humanist assessment of Australia's refugee policy, and publicised the self-described 'imperfect proposal' from Frank Brennan, Tim Costello, Robert Manne and John Menadue. They have promoted a 'break the deadlock' plan: namely a new bipartisan consensus to resolve the futures of the 32,000 refugees and claimants, onshore and offshore, who are unable to get on with their lives due to existing policies.

    • Abstract: Stuart, SN
      On arriving in Iceland during their summer break we made contact with the local Humanists. Hope Knutsson hails from New York and has lived half her life in Iceland. After introducing us to the Humanist managing director, Bjarni Jonsson, we settled down to a hospitable lunch together in a sunny corner of Reykjavik's botanic garden and swapped Humanist experiences.

  • Issue 129 - Assembling an inter belief dossier
    • Abstract:
      Humanists are aware of their debt to Unitarians who, at Chicago in 1933, issued the first modern Humanist Manifesto, which was endorsed by progressive thinkers including John Dewey. The Victorian Humanist Society was formed in March 1961, at a public meeting where Unitarians and Rationalists came together to establish a new direction. It is notable that our freethinking progenitors have since converged, in doctrine and commended purposes, to practical affirmations of a humanistic life-stance. Evidence for this is given as A and B, following.

  • Issue 129 - A humanist story: The formation of the IHEU
    • Abstract: Ives, Rosslyn
      The formation of the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU) is a key event in the story of the modern humanist movement. It occurred in 1952 at a congress attended by over 200 delegates, held in Amsterdam. The delegates also decided to call their ethical, non-religious outlook 'humanism'.

  • Issue 129 - An emeritus humanist chaplain response
    • Abstract: Foley, Charles
      I found it strange because it attacks a long-standing Humanist endeavour, which is neither a 'recent, craven, nor a concession; not a compromise; nor a capitulation to spiritualism'. I was amazed that such a poorly researched article was given a full page in a national Humanist publication.

  • Issue 129 - Participation is not capitulation - compromise is not
           cowardice
    • Abstract: Love, Murray
      I write in reaction to Gary Bakker's article in AH No. 128, condemning the phrase 'humanist chaplains', discussed during a session at the Melbourne Convention in April 2017. Life's too short to cover it all. I wish he'd made better arguments. His call for people to lose their jobs was never appropriate, nor was it legitimate for him to reference myth, phony remedies, apocalypse, abominations or other capitulations to superstition. His scattershot style intrudes on a number of big issues for our movement, regarding efforts to revive humanism in the 21st century. My response to Bakker's concerns will be fair but firm.

           learn from them
    • Abstract: Boulet, Jacques
      Having read a number of works by authors venturing outside the established confines of their disciplines, I was particularly attracted to those who combine the biological sciences (botany, zoology, forestry, deep ecology) with the social sciences (anthropology, sociology, politics, economics) and creatively mix and match their respective research traditions.

  • Issue 128 - Xenophobia and nationalism
    • Abstract: Soutphommasane, Tim
      What we are seeing today is a real evolution of racist sentiment. Whereas once we would have understood racism - I'm using racism and xenophobia interchangeably here - only in the sense that a lot of racist sentiment is directed at those who are not regarded as part of Australian society, who come here as migrants. While in the past racism typically involved the doctrinal belief in superiority, its expression today need not be predicated on a view of racial superiority. I would say that racial hostility, even if it's born of ignorance or fear, could still rightly be described as racist. You don't need to necessarily subscribe to biological racist theories in order to do or say things that have racist implications. In other words, you don't need to be a card-carrying member of an organized racist movement in order to engage in xenophobia or racism. I only mention this because I believe that in our public discourse today there still remains a great deal of resistance to recognising or acknowledging or labelling things as xenophobic or racist, because we have in our heads that you need to be an egregious moral character or essentially a Nazi in order to be a racist. And I don't believe that is the right approach to these issues.

  • Issue 128 - The revolution that needs to happen: A political take on
           humanism
    • Abstract: Wallace, Meg
      The adoption by nations of universal human rights arose from the vision of those who were appalled by the tyranny of arbitrary, belligerent state sovereignty with its mass persecution because of race, ethnicity, and political or religious beliefs. The final impetus came from the carnage of two world wars. This gave inspiration to nations for a worldwide Human Rights revolution, by adopting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), following earlier human rights declarations by the US and France.

  • Issue 128 - In godmen we trust
    • Abstract: Mall, Sangeeta
      At a tea party last week, the conversation turned to faith. A few of the guests lauded the words of a modern Indian seer, who now commands followers drawn from India's elite. There seemed no sense in pointing out that anyone who has amassed millions of rupees, operates out of a sprawling farm in southern India and jets around the world is a marketing genius more than a wise man. The man, like most men of his ilk, addresses himself as something exceptional. In his case, the monicker is Sadhguru, or the true guru, as opposed to plain gurus, i.e. simple teachers. On his website, there's a menu card of 'Indian' offerings, and tag words like 'yoga', 'meditation', 'spiritualism', 'Indian culture', 'being', 'wellness' are peppered through. The tea party guests, upper middle class Indians from a corporate background, found nothing strange in suspending their beliefs in favour of a self-styled mystic.

  • Issue 128 - Victorian voluntary assisted dying bill
    • Abstract: Gardner, Harry
      I received the final report of the Ministerial Advisory Panel on Voluntary Assisted Dying, and on the following Tuesday the long awaited VAD Bill 2017 (133 pages) was tabled in the Victorian Parliament. These events followed wide consultations over the past year, during which time I called at the offices of 49 MPs to ask them to pass the Bill so that, if assailed by unconquerable pain from prostate cancer in two years' time, I could legally request a prescription of a lethal drug to end my suffering.

    • Abstract: Bakker, Gary
      At the Australian Humanist Convention in Melbourne in April, two 'humanist chaplains' spoke to us about their work as chaplains in a hospital and at a university. They were the very prominent and respected Lyndon Storey and Geoffrey Ballard.

  • Issue 128 - Order-based morality
    • Abstract: Hotchin, Peter
      For anyone in search of non-supernaturalistic grounds capable of serving as the source of morality, the pervasive phenomenon that we call 'order' could be worth considering. We need order, and moral behaviour would seem to be a means of satisfying that need.

    • Abstract: Storey, Lyndon
      As CAHS President I plan to contribute regular reports to AH on the situation of Australian Humanism and recent developments within our humanist movement. I won't try to cover everything, but look at something to highlight in each issue. Probably the biggest thing, in an institutional sense, that has happened in the last 3 months is that CAHS has a new member, the ACT Humanist Society (ACTHS). Welcome ACTHS.
