|Humanism As the Next Step - Mary and Lloyd Morain Price: $10.00 ||
Nowhere else in the United States is there available a book like this. While there have been technical studies of humanism in the past, never before has there been such an authoritative, popular treatment of the whole field. It is for the 20% of the population who no longer receive satisfaction from traditional religions and technical philosophies. A much-needed resource for people who have independently come to an alternative to religious faith--whether they call themselves humanists or not.
Lloyd Morain, a former president of the American Humanist Association and editor of the Humanist magazine, was a founding director of the International Humanist and Ethical Union. He has worked in various capacities for industrial, mining, motion picture, and utility companies, including Earth Sciences, San Francisco Films, and the Illinois Gas Company. He has served on the boards of many nonprofit organizations, including the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and is a Fellow of the World Academy of Art and Science. Mary Morain died on June 14, 1999. Her interest in social reform led her to leave professional social work and teaching to become a full-time organizational volunteer, serving on the boards of many nonprofit organizations. In the 1940s and 1950s, she was on birth-control boards in Massachusetts and San Francisco and participated in pioneering world conferences and meetings on family planning. Past president of the International Society for General Semantics."
