What is Humanism?

Humanism is a rational philosophy informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion.

Affirming the dignity of each human being, it supports the maximization of individual liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility.

It advocates the extension of participatory democracy and the expansion of the open society, standing for human rights and social justice.

Free of supernaturalism, it recognizes human beings as a part of nature and holds that values--be they religious, ethical, social, or political--have their source in human experience and culture. 

Humanism thus derives the goals of life from human need and interest rather than from theological or ideological abstractions, and asserts that humanity must take responsibility for its own destiny.
-- The American Humanist Association

HAGP program meetings are an opportunity for group members to come together with each other; become educated on a topic by hearing from a speaker; or discuss issues and explore ideas. Our lecture series covers a wide variety of subjects. Speakers have come from all the the Delaware Valley, many US states, and even abroad.

When and Where: Program meetings are last Sundays from 1:30pm-4pm at the Upper Moreland Library in Willow Grove. There are no program meetings in July and August due to a seasonal change in library hours.
