What does it mean to be a humanist? Is humanism a new idea? How do people live their lives without religious beliefs? The first of its kind aimed at the new curriculum for upper primary and lower secondary school children, this book examines how humanists respond to fundamental questions about morals and ethics, the origins of life, religion and the state. It looks at how humanists mark the milestones of birth, marriage and death. How do people without belief in God live moral and fulfilled lives, with respect for humankind and the universe? This thought-provoking approach encourages readers to think about the big questions for themselves.

The book includes contributions from a number of prominent humanists, such as Stephen Fry, Camila Batmanghelidjh, Philip Pullman, Jim Al-Khalili, Natalie Haynes and Shappi Khorsandi, who explain their own philosophy and tell us what is important to them.

Part of the groundbreaking and important 'And Other Big Questions' series, which offers balanced and considered views on the big issues we face in the world we live in today.

Other titles in the series include:
What is Feminism? Why do we need It?
Who are Refugees and Migrants? What Makes People Leave their Homes?

MEDIA REVIEWS
An important, accessible and useful book (in and outside of the classroom) that could fill a gap in current culture for children * Booktrust *
The clear structure of the book, the attractive layout and its interactive approach make it appealing to children. Its informative openness makes it an excellent resource for the classroom as well as a book for an individual child to read and talk about with a parent. A good investment for encouraging thinking! * RE Today Spring 2016 *
A thought-provoking approach which will encourage readers to think about the big questions for themselves and give teachers an excellent starting point for discussions. A clear and honest view. * Parents In Touch *
