What about?[edit]

The lead paragraph makes it seem that humanism is concerned strictly with correct belief. This seems a rather limited view. What about social justice? The environment. Inequality? Disarmament? World peace and understanding? Climate change? Don't these come under the purview of humanism? Human rights? (I won't even mention art and music.)

Paragraph above goes back to November 2, 2015
I wrote in the context of an earlier lead paragraph and no longer think it pertinent. Mballen (talk) 15:21, 3 November 2016 (UTC)


Is the word "polemic" really the most neutral term for that section? The term "criticism" is more unbiased, more descriptive of the section's actual contents, and more in line with how similar articles are structured on Wikipedia. (talk) 04:49, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Please add at te beginning of the article the modern definition: Humanism - philosophical current or outlook, based on rational thinking, which expresses concern about the need, happiness, dignity and the free development of man in his environments: social and natural. Humanism puts man in the role of the host (in the sense of exploitation but also protection) of the environment, aware that the man is also a part of the Earth's ecosystem. Specific human rights and responsibilities arise solely from the fact that he is the only creature on Earth that holds science and technology. Humanism excludes selfishness (individual, state, inter generational, etc) and calls for brotherhood and solidarity. 2A01:E35:8A70:DC80:119E:715:8BB3:B7AE (talk) 19:24, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
