Naturalism Through Narrative: Knowledge, Ethics, and Identity in the Creation of Meaning 

Part two of a multi-part course probing the boundary lands between humanism and the arts. In August 2008, the Center for Inquiry – Transnational in Amherst, New York, presented this course by secular humanist activist Judith Walker.

” Art is the creation of that which evokes an emotional response, leading to thoughts of the noblest kind”.
