Humanist Prism

There are millions of people all around the world who share humanist values and ideas. But each is also unique, like one face of a huge prism with may sides. Here we collect the different voices of the protagonists of the international humanist movement, in a series we call: Humanist Prism.

“Humanist prism” is a collection of remarkable quotes from past and present protagonists of the worldwide humanist movement, including for example:

  • IHEU notable personalities
  • representatives of IHEU Member Organizations
  • humanist activists, intellectuals, philosophers, writers, artists, etc.

We will be showing the diverse faces and various views of the international humanist family demonstrating the positive outlook of Humanism.

Quotes will be shared on this page and on IHEU’s social media channels with the hashtag #HumanistPrism
