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. It was a course offering of that summer’s Center for Inquiry Institute. A former higher education attorney and onetime vice president for development of the University of Colorado Foundation, Walker examines how philosophy and the arts—in particular, the narrative tradition—can inform one another to build a secular humanist approach to life that is affirming and exuberant without being spiritual.

If I may be so bold to offer and share this fudamental definition of Art, as it pertains to Humanism.

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