Logo Igor Pivovar 1Welcome to my site!

This site is about people, society and secular humanism — a worldview which proclaims human beings, their right to happiness, development and manifestation of their positive abilities as the highest value.

The site contains my thoughts and reflections on topical issues, as well as the opinions of others, whose ideas are interesting to me.

The site provides information from different areas: ideas of humanism, social evolution, human rights and fundamental freedoms, history, religion, science, technology etc.

Russian is the main language; some materials and data will be available in English.

What is Secular Humanism?

According to the IHEU Minimum Statement on Humanism, humanism is a democratic and ethical life stance that affirms that human beings have the right and responsibility to give meaning and shape to their own lives. Humanism stands for the building of a more humane society through an ethics based on human and other natural values in a spirit of reason and free inquiry through human capabilities. Humanism is not theistic, and it does not accept supernatural views of reality.
