    The humanitarian calendar and daily maxim book (1929) PDF book by William J. Robinson Excerpt from the author’s introduction: I am a profound believer in the power of words. Words, woven into sentences, slogans, maxims, songs, and books have deeply influenced the lives of individuals, as well as the destinies of whole nations.

    Humanism as a philosophy Free PDF Book by Corliss Lamont (1949)

    Humanism as a philosophy Free PDF Book by Corliss Lamont (1949) This book is a philosopher’s testament. In it, I have tried to describe in clear and simple terms that fully rounded the philosophy of life that I call Humanism. I have given my own version of the much-debated concept of Humanism, and both expect and welcome disagreement with my interpretation of a viewpoint that in its fundamentals goes back at least as far as Athens of the fifth century B.
