He’s also one of the world’s leading living Humanists. But what’s a Humanist?
Fortunately, Fry and the British Humanist Association have teamed up to create a series of four short animated videos to explain what Humanism is and how is applies to our lives. They cover science and knowledge (“How do we know what is true”), death and the afterlife (“What should we think about death?”), secular ethics (“What makes something right or wrong?”), and the meaning of life (“How can I be happy?”).
These are obviously big questions that can’t be fully answered in three-minute videos, but these might be good resources for explaining Humanism to friends and family who are unfamiliar with the concepts.
How do we know what is true?
What should we think about death?
