March Program with Greg Epstein: Humanism as Faith in our Common Humanity

March 10, 2021 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Lisa Ridge

We’ve invited Greg Epstein to give a Zoom lunchtime talk titled “Staying Human: Humanism as Faith in our Common Humanity Amid Rage and Heartbrokeness.” Greg says:

“In ambiguous and unstable times, we need fewer visions of perfect heaven, and more actions to improve flawed but beautiful human projects like democracy, jurisprudence, and science. Faith in such secular institutions means believing in the work people do for one another: facing problems compassionately and intelligently; pursuing truth, without prejudice; creating solutions that work. These are the tasks we must undertake to believe in one another again.”

Greg is the Humanist Chaplain at Harvard and MIT and 2009 NYT bestselling author of Good Without God: What a Billion Nonreligious People Do Believe. He was also the Ethicist in Residence at TechCrunch in 2019-2020. His writing has appeared on CNN, Newsweek, The Washington Post, Salon, Cognoscenti and WBUR. His work has also been widely discussed in the national and international media, including the New York Times, CNN, Boston Globe, and on dozens of radio and television programs.

This event will be recorded.
Social time starts at 11:30am
