    Richard Norman's timely and powerfully argued philosophical defence of humanism is also an impassioned plea that we turn to ourselves, not religion, if we want to answer Socrates' question: what is the best kind of life to lead? After a general introduction, five chapters deal with the rejection of religious belief; the distinctive characteristics of being human; morality independent of religion; the spiritual dimension of human life; and a new chapter in this edition on recent debates about religion.
