A reside factor in anthropology and improvement stories, humanism isn't ordinarily addressed through analytic philosophers. Arguing for humanism as a view approximately truths, Humanism and Embodiment insists that disembodied cause, now not faith, can be the objective of secularists selling freedom of enquiry and human neighborhood.

Susan Babbitt's unique research provides humanism as a meta-ethical view, paralleling naturalistic realism in fresh analytic epistemology and philosophy of technological know-how. contemplating the character of information, quite the unconventional contingency of information claims upon causal mechanisms, spiritual thinkers like Thomas Merton and Ivan Illich supply extra clinical conceptions of functional deliberation than are provided through a few non-religious ethicists. Drawing on philosophical resources comparable to Marxism, Buddhism and Christianity, this unique research considers implications of an embodied notion of cause, revealing philosophical, sensible and political implications.
