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. This website [January 2019] does not include our Short Talks or Walks - see https://www.meetup.com/Dorset-Humanists/ instead.

Humanism, Politics and our Future

Humaism, Politics & Our Future 10th January 2015Saturday 10th January 2.00pm 
Moordown Community Centre, Coronation Avenue, Moordown Bournemouth BH9 1TW

With Professor of the History of Political Thought Greg Claeys

Are you fed up with bankers’ bonuses, corporate giants evading tax, unaffordable housing, and incompetent government? In preparation for the May 2015 general election, Greg Claeys will be considering the policies of our political parties and how well they correspond with our secular humanist tradition of working for a better world.

Greg has extensively researched and written about the development of modern political thought, including an in-depth exploration of mankind’s various attempts to envision an ideal society, and will be drawing inspiration from reformers such as socialist Robert Owen, human rights pioneer Thomas Paine, and libertarian John Stuart Mill.

Greg is Professor of the History of Political Thought at Royal Holloway, University of London and is a popular speaker on both humanist themes and politics.

“Join us for a thought-provoking analysis of how likely our political parties are to fulfil our humanist aspirations”

Free entry (donations appreciated).     Everyone welcome!
