Nihilism, unemployment, inflation, violence, torture, persecution and death infiltrate everywhere.
In this emergency, Humanism gives a response in order to organise social relations from the human being and for the human being.
If in other times Humanism reacted against obscurantism and authoritarian regimes, making science shine and proposing progressive forms of social organisation, today original naivety has matured acquiring identity and consciousness of its limitations and possibilities.
Humanism today starts from human existence and not from theories that propose the reality of a world that precedes human life.
Humanism today does not accept the explanation of former or previous philosophies in the sense that a metaphysics, a sociology or, lastly, a philosophy or history are necessary in order to explain human existence; on the contrary, it is only starting from human existence, which is lived and is concrete, that a scientific vision of the world can be organised.
Contemporary Humanism is not satisfied with pseudo-scientific theses lacking existential foundation, nor is it satisfied with the myth of the presumed “human nature” that determines whether people choose good or evil.
