Definition of Humanism

"Humanism is a philosophical and ethical worldview affirming that individuals have the right and responsibility to give meaning and shape to their own lives. Deeply committed to the protection of Human Rights, humanism defends the right for everyone to choose their beliefs, values and lifestyles, subject only to them not interfering with other people's rights."

What is Humanism

"Many people are humanist or follow a humanist lifestance without knowing it. They believe that everyone should be allowed to live in accordance with their own beliefs, subject only to them not interfering with other people's rights. In this section, you can learn more about both aspects of humanism: humanism as a lifestance and humanism as a vision for society."
