A talk by Andrew Copson, Chief Executive of the British Humanist Association (BHA)
Humanists rely on free enquiry, reason and empathy rather than faith in prophets and ancient sacred texts, but can we also look to individuals for inspiration? Andrew believes we can, and in this talk for West Dorset Humanists (WDH), he’ll be introducing us to some of his personal "Humanist heroes". Andrew’s last talk for WDH was a terrific success, and he’s a great ambassador for Humanism, so we expect this to be a fascinating evening for regulars and new visitors alike.
Andrew Copson became Chief Executive of the BHA in January 2010 after five years coordinating the BHA's education and public affairs work. His writing on Humanist and secularist issues has been a regular feature in The Guardian, The Independent, The Times and New Statesman, and he has also represented the BHA and Humanism extensively on television news programmes, along with guest appearances on Newsnight, The Daily Politics and The Big Questions.
