A discussion series led by Society Leader Joseph Chuman will make use of the new online Ethical Culture journal “Reflections,” published by the American Ethical Union. Each issue includes short articles by Ethical Culture leaders on a common theme relevant to Ethical Culture. The topics:
1. Given the central respect Ethical Culture places on the dignity of human beings, how are we related to people we find obnoxious or who are socially destructive?
2. Given the progressive orientation of Ethical Culture, can a political conservative find a place in our organization, and if so, what is it?
3. Ethical Culture as a humanism has been criticized as being overly anthropocentric. In these times, when concern for the natural environment is a very high priority, can we develop an environmental ethic out of Ethical Culture’s humanism?
Registrants in the series, which will be on Wednesdays May 23, May 30 and June 6, from 7:30 to 9 pm, will be directed to the web site where the articles can be found and will be asked to read them before each meeting. There is no charge for this series, but participants are asked to register in advance. Register by emailing Linda Bennet at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling her at 201-836-5187.
