Leader, Philadelphia Ethical Society
For over 140 years Ethical Humanism has promoted progressive solutions to social problems – solutions that try to ease human suffering through collective action and civic engagement. At times this leads Ethical Societies to appear exclusively dedicated to liberal perspectives. What do these political labels mean? Is there room for conservatism in Ethical Humanism? How do we encourage free thought and civil debate while remaining true to our heritage? Hugh Taft-Morales explores the challenge of balancing diverse perspectives and group cohesion within Ethical Culture.
