LSS: Andrew Copson: The Little Book of Humanism

Description: Our new season starts on 6 September with a Zoom talk on

"The Little Book of Humanism"

by Andrew Copson

We all want to lead a happy life. Traditionally, when in need of guidance, comfort or inspiration, many people turn to religion. But there has been another way to learn how to live well - the humanist way - and in today's more secular world, it is more relevant than ever.

In the recently published THE LITTLE BOOK OF HUMANISM, Alice Roberts and Andrew Copson share over two thousand years of humanist wisdom through an uplifting collection of stories, quotes and meditations on how to live an ethical and fulfilling life, grounded in reason and humanity.

With universal insights and beautiful original illustrations, THE LITTLE BOOK OF HUMANISM is a perfect introduction to and a timeless anthology of humanist thought from some of history and today's greatest thinkers.

Andrew is the Chief Executive of Humanists UK and the President of Humanists International.

Proceeds go to Humanists UK
