Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events.

The Heart of Humanism: Thinking Clearly about Ethics & Human Flourishing

Heart of Humanism 27 April 2016Wednesday 27th April 7.30pm
The Green House Hotel,  4 Grove Road, Bournemouth BH1 3AX

With Estelle Goldie

What does it mean to live a good fulfilling life?

What makes something right or wrong, and how do we as humanists derive our morality without religious dogma to guide us?

Accepting that this life is the only life we know we have, and that we need to determine our own purpose and meaning throughout our lives, offers us both enhanced freedom and a responsibility to use our limited existence wisely. Drawing inspiration from a rich tradition of secular thinking, Estelle Goldie will help us to think through important ethical questions, and discover how our shared human values can enable us to flourish within our communities while celebrating the things that make life beautiful and satisfying. Estelle has taught philosophy for many years.
