For some of you, life maybe even busier than normal, continuing to work while keeping as safe as you can. Some of you may also have your school-age children at home or be supporting those who are self isolating or socially restricted.
Others will have more spare time on your hands and to you I’d like to suggest these two free highly-regarded and interesting on-line courses on Humanism, created by Humanists UK.
Both courses run over six weeks and involve about 2 hours a week of reading and watching videos. No previous knowledge of Humanism or philosophy is required for either course. Some people prefer one, some the other, but most people have enjoyed doing both.
I know both courses as I’m the on-line Mentor and support the course participants.
The two courses are:
HUMANIST LIVES with Alice Roberts
Scroll down this link and join the course that starts on 30th March or wait until the next course is announced.
This course covers the main aspects of Humanism presented in the form of the personal views of different Humanists.
INTRODUCING HUMANISM: NON-RELIGIOUS APPROACHES TO LIFE with Sandi Toksvig
Scroll down this link and join the course that started on 17th February or wait until the next course is announced.
This course is a bit different as it considers various Humanist issues from a philosophical rather than a personal viewpoint.
In both courses there is an opportunity to post comments or ask questions, but this entirely voluntary. However, if you join either course, do at least post a comment to say Hi to me and that you are from Shropshire Humanists!
