The answer to the first question is obvious: yes, of course we can be good without God. To wonder aloud to the contrary is not just idle curiosity; it betrays prejudice against a up to a billion nonreligious people. But this course will focus on even more interesting questions: If we are no longer religious, how DO atheists, agnostics and allies determine our positive ethical values? What is the (fascinating, global and ancient) history of skepticism, doubt and freethought? What does it mean to live a life of purpose and meaning without religion? When and how should secular and religious people seek common ground, particularly when important issues such as social and racial justice, climate change, or nuclear weapons are at stake? And perhaps most importantly, how can we find and build community with fellow nonreligious people?

Come explore and discuss these questions and many more with instructor Greg M. Epstein, Humanist Chaplain at Harvard University and author of the New York Times bestselling book Good Without God: What a Billion Nonreligious People Do Believe (on which the course will be based). Greg is the Executive Director of the Humanist Hub and has now spent nearly 20 years researching the meaning, history and future of humanism, including over a dozen years as the Humanist Chaplain at Harvard. Greg has served as an advisor on humanism and the nonreligious community to political leaders such as Boston Mayor Martin Walsh and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, and his work has been discussed widely including by the New York Times, CNN, and on dozens of radio and television programs nationwide.

Since the founding of the Humanist Hub four years ago, working with this diverse community of hundreds of humanists and allies has taught Greg so much about all of the above questions. As he begins work on a 10th anniversary version of his groundbreaking book he is excited to include you in the process of (re)defining humanism for the 21st century! Come be part of a critical, timely and exclusive 7-week conversation about the future of authentic humanism at a time when all of humanity is in transition.

Wednesdays, Sept 27 - November 8, 7:00pm.

Note: Committed, active and enthusiastic members of the community with a financial need can be accommodated. If the price is prohibitive, please email info@humanisthub.org.
