FUNDAMENTALS OF MONISTIC HUMANISM
Please help Anil Chawla in writing this book
Humanism has influenced modern civilization more than any other philosophy has. But, humanism is probably as old as mankind. Its foundations can be found in the ideas of classical Greek philosophers such as the Stoics and Epicurians as well as in Chinese Confucianism and in Indian philosophy. These philosophical views looked to human beings rather than gods to solve human problems.
The proposed book Fundamentals of Monistic Humanism is an attempt to develop a holistic humanist philosophy that can guide individual, family, society, country and the world to lead a life in harmony with the nature and the universe. It starts from the fundamentals of humanism and takes help from ancient Indian philosophy. It does not reject any civilization or culture or religion. Nor does it accept any book or authority as the Ultimate Truth.
The writing of this book is intended to be a co-operative effort involving all those who agree with the above basic vision.
