The Good Life: A Humanist View

March 30 @ 18:30 - 20:30 AEDT

Photo of Leslie AllanLeslie Allan will begin by sharing how his early experiences shape his humanist outlook today. He will then outline what he considers to be the three core principles underlying the humanist world view: reason and evidence, compassion and equality, and autonomy and dignity. Leslie illustrates the application of these principles with historical and contemporary examples. He then draws upon each of these principles to tease out what it means to live a good life; a life of meaning and purpose.
