In the view of the humanists, the painter Giotto (d. 1337) and the vernacular writer and early humanist Francesco Petrarch (1304–1374) led the rebirth or Renaissance. Author and researcher Tom Horn lays it all out in “Trans-Humanism: Destroying the Barriers,” an hourlong DVD exploring the radical transformation of humanity. The following is an excerpt from Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism, and the Future by Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2000).

Writing in 1957, he defined transhumanism as "man remaining man, but transcending himself, by realizing new possibilities of and for his human nature". A great many so-called Marxists are Leninists, Trotskyites and Maoists of one form or another who, in concert with bourgeois propaganda, hold up Karl Marx and his work as the foundation for their positions and actions regarding the seizing of the state by a party dictatorship.

Lifshitz notes that Adler had been actively concerned about child labor issues since 1872, “when in Germany he read ‘with horror’ Karl Marx’s description of England’s orphanages, mills, and child maltreatment in Das Kapital.” He was a tenement reform activist and served on the New York State Tenement House Commission. Thus, any spiritual quality or uniquely mental faculty (or "ghost in the machine" to use Gilbert Ryle's term) is thereby exorcised.

Renaissance Humanism is the spirit of learning that developed at the end of the middle ages with the revival of classical letters and a renewed confidence in the ability of human beings to determine for themselves truth and falsehood. CNN commentator Paul Begala says, “He has unmatched experience, a graceful pen (or pixel nowadays) and deep insight into the best and worst of us.” Novelist Sarah Bird speaks of his “lucid and lyrical” prose. On page 58 and 59, Lukes discusses renaissance individualism by examining the ideas presented in The Development of The Individual written by renaissance scholar Jacob Burckhardt.

So much for the political/legalistic branch of secular Humanism; what about the communitarian branch, Ethical Culture? The first is "a devotion to the humanities or the revival of class, individualistic and critical spirit, and emphasis on secular concerns characteristic of the Renaissance." The concepts of secular humanism are subtly dulling our national consciousness and are seen in radical feminism, the homosexual rights movement and the clamor for the individual right to abortion and suicide, the total exclusion of the right to prayer in public life and public schools.

Ingeborg started her career as a newsreporter for Dutch television. Before we take a look at why they reflect the religious dispute, first we must know some background on what caused it.

The document contains fifteen provisions, one of which (point fourteen) reads: The humanists are firmly convinced that existing acquisitive and profit-motivated society has shown itself to be inadequate and that a radical change in methods, controls, and motives must be instituted.

This in turn guarantees freedom of choice, particularly when studying the political system. But even when functional ultimacy is asserted by theists, the principle is not allotted and administered in the more radical way that characterizes religious humanism.
