Arthur Dobrin, Professor Emeritus, Hofstra University:Ten Questions Every Humanist Must Ask

Arthur Dobrin (born 1943) is an American author, Professor Emeritus of Management, Entrepreneurship, and General Business at Hofstra University, and Leader Emeritus of the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island. Prior to his career, Arthur Dobrin served two years in the Peace Corps with his wife, Lyn, in Kenya.

There he was in charge of the educational component of the Kisii District office of the Department of Cooperative Development. He has maintained his interest in Kenya since, having returned with his family and having led educational safaris to Kenya for Adelphi University School of Social Work. He has published two novels, a collection of short stories and a book of poems all set in Kenya. He and Lyn direct the Kenya Project, a program that provides funding for an elementary school in Kisii.

Our speakers offer thoughts related to the philosophy of humanism or share their experiences and commitments in the struggle to foster peace, justice, economic fairness and racial and religious harmony. Everyone is invited to Sunday Platform meeting.
The Sunday School at the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County helps children aged 2-14 explore and develop their moral and critical thinking skills through fun and interactive lessons and field trips. We meet weekly on Sundays for 1.5 hours while the adults of the Ethical Culture Society are attending the platform meeting. Our wide ranging curriculum allows kids to examine themselves, their community and the world in general. We teach about different cultures, philosophies and religions. We encourage our students to ask questions, think for themselves and make up their own minds about the bigger questions in life. Our children develop strong values and ethical standpoints. The Sunday School Graduation Rite of Passage, completed by our 8th graders, allows them to present to the community how their Sunday School experience has informed their moral and ethical development.
