Lecture 2, The Rise & Fall of Secular Humanism:
We live in a society that has seen tremendous development in science and technology. This development has been intimately tied to an ideology called secular humanism, which views human reason as the ultimate authority and rejects the supernatural. Modern culture, however, is very open to the supernatural and countless forms of spirituality. In this lecture, Dr. Peter Jones explains the development of secular humanism, tracing its origin, rise to dominance, and eventual decline. By understanding this influential ideological movement, you will be better prepared to understand the modern culture in which you live.
