The Humanist applies Humanism—a naturalistic and democratic outlook informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion—to broad areas of social and personal concern. In pursuit of alternative ideas, the Humanist airs opinions that may not necessarily reflect those of the editors or the publisher, the American Humanist Association. The American Humanist Association, is a membership organization established in 1941 as successor to the Humanist Press Association, which was established in 1935, which was itself successor to the Humanist Fellowship organized at the University of Chicago in 1927. The AHA is a founding member of the International Humanist and Ethical Union. With a distinguished cadre of feature writers covering everything from science and religion to politics and popular culture, and with a wide-ranging list of stellar contributors, the Humanist continues to challenge its readers with insightful ethical critique and commentary on the central issues of our time.
