What is the Humanism in Romeo and Juliet?

Since both Romeo and Juliet "refute th[eir] names," (families and friends) in order to be with each other they are focusing on themselves (or the individual.) Humanism has more to deal with losing focus on spiritual thoughts and moving to more worldly, so that's the best I can thin of.

How does secular humanism regard money and career?

Secular humanism does not, by its very nature, have an established position on "money and career". SH is simply the philosophical position that there is no preternatural meaning, purpose or power in the world and as such humans must find their moral paths as individuals.

So if you, as an individual, find money and a good career to be a goal worth pursuing, it is your prerogative to do so. If you do not, you are free to explore and find what you think will make you happiest in life.

What caused humanism?

The ideology of "humanism" was most likely caused by way of an answer toward the absolute corruption and hyjacking of religious practice by ruling, tyranical leaders who took over the common man's methods and objects of worship in order to gain power, sustinance, etc. Probably goes back to the Tower of Babel when people wanted to be ruled but not by some "being" but by a "leader" or "king". Now, the ideology has transformed from human rule over other humans to humans simply ruling themselves according to their own philosophy, conjecture and reasoning...attaining their own standards for themselves. Humanism has been around at least since ancient Greek philosophy if not further back than that. Even God has a problem with Religion because of the corruption caused by man's greed and hubris. Humanism is an answer to that. Look back to the Peace movement of the '60s.

What are secular beliefs?

AnswerSecular systems use language and carved out content that is more open to interpretation and question. It is the root of confusion, devisiveness, and religious war in the world today. This gives explanation for various off-shoots and branched versions of primary and secondary doctrines seen in the world religions. Answer"Secular Belief" is probably a misnomer. Secularism is a modern movement seen most often in industrialized nations. The movement holds to untraditional ideas of subjective morality, separate of a religious grounding. It is often associated with Atheism due to the lack of religious tie-ins, but not all secularists are athiests. The movement mostly has to do with escaping age-old, strict ideas of religious morality. AnswerSecular beliefs are those that have nothing to do with any god, the God, or religion. AnswerSecular beliefs are based on Natural Law, while religious beliefs are based on supernatural or the divine. Answer"Secular Belief" is a misnomer. However one may still believe it best to live in a secular society. A country is defined as secular if it does not have a national religion and if it does not favour any religious belief over another, even atheism, in its laws. Some examples include Australia, Turkey and the USA. As a counter example, England has (or maybe used to have) a national religion and based many laws on, first of all, Catholicism and then Anglicanism.

The main "belief", if you like, of secularism is that all religions are equal and that moral, logical, reasonable judgments and opinions made in the interest of law should not be affected by religious doctrine but by the morality, logic and reason of those involved in the decision. The main purpose for having a country, state, society, etc. as being secular is that nobody can be persecuted for their beliefs or their belief system. It is a fairer system that is nearly always abused. For instance, in the USA, it is political suicide to announce that one is not a Christian and expressing any opinion not heard in Sunday mass seems blasphemous to the Senate.

Secularism is not a "modern" movement but is a necessary ideal for any multicultural society.

Who stated that man is a social animal?

Citing the following passage, Bartlett's Familiar Quotations attributes the phrase, "Man is a social animal," to Baruch Spinoza:

"Yet it rarely happens that men live in obedience to reason, for things are so ordered among them, that they are generally envious and troublesome one to another. Nevertheless they are scarcely able to lead a solitary life, so that the definition of man as a social animal has met with general assent ; in fact, men do derive from social life much more convenience than injury."

-Ethics, IV, proposition 35:note

The notion of man as a social animal may have originated with Aristotle:

"Hence it is evident that the state is a creation of nature and that man by nature is a political animal."

-Politics, I

The adjective that Aristotle used to describe man in Greek is 'politikos' which is where we get the English word political. For this reason, 'politikos' is often translated as political, however the actual Greek meaning was a little deeper. 'Politikos' came from the Greek word 'polis' meaning city-state. To be 'politikos' was to be a member of the 'polis' or a citizen. Being a citizen, while certainly implying participation in various political responsibilities, was more about being a part of society; contributing to the good of the whole. In this way, the meaning of 'politikos' more resembles the English word social than political. ed that "man is by nature a social animal" in regards to human nature.

Can a solipsist do redaction?

Solipsist is a person/entity who believes that the whole universe exists within his/her/its imagination. Nothing else is real or even exists.

Redaction is the act of combining several texts into one. For example, many books in the christian Bible were assembled from previous works and edited together as an assemblage of the previous work. Typically there is a redactional purpose in compiling this derivative work which encourages the redactor to leave out, or de-emphasize parts of the original works that conflict with the redactional purpose. It is important to understand the bias of the redactor.

If for example the redactor is a 44 year old Canadian woman, her compilation of multiple works will probably de-emphasize elements critical of older women, critical of Canada.

Since a Solipsist believes all previous works were authored by itself, there are no independent works to combine, so a Solipsist cannot truly redact.

Summarize changes the Renaissance brought to painting and sculpture?

"The Renaissance is characterized by a focus on the arts of Ancient Greece and Rome, which led to many changes in both the technical aspects of painting and sculpture, as well as to their subject matter. It began in Italy, a country rich in Roman heritage as well as material prosperity to fund artists. During the Renaissance, painters began to enhance the realism of their work by using new techniques in perspective, thus representing three dimensions more authentically. Artists also began to use new techniques in the manipulation of light and darkness, such as the tone contrast evident in many of Titian's portraits and the development of sfumato and chiaroscuro by Leonardo da Vinci. Sculptors, too, began to rediscover many ancient techniques such as contrapposto. Following with the humanist spirit of the age, art became more secular in subject matter, depicting ancient mythology in addition to Christian themes. This genre of art is often referred to as Renaissance Classicism. In the North, the most important Renaissance innovation was the widespread use of oil paints, which allowed for greater colour and intensity."

Why was Wycliffe a threat to the institutional church?

Wycliffe translated the inerrant Holy Scriptures into English so that anyone who could read would be able to read the Bible in his or her own native language. This was a threat only to a church of men who were more interested in having authority over the people for their own personal gain rather than for a church of men who would applaud that the Truth may be known to all. There may have been a fear of interpretation but a true man of God would still yearn to have the Gospel be available to all (Psalm 119, John 5:39, Acts 17:11, Romans 10:17, 2 Timothy 2:15) and emphasize that the Bible is not for ANY private interpretation as written in Isaiah 28:10, 28:13, and 2 Peter 1:20. Also, some in the institutional church may have thought or realized that some of their teachings and practices were not in agreement with the inerrant word of God. They thus wanted to hide this from the people, lest these things be uncovered and their 'hold' on people be loosed.
