"[An] eloquent call for 'humanist eupraxsophy,' a 'practical moral' system based on empathy and scientific knowledge. . . . With vigor and conviction, Kurtz lays out his vision of a civilization grounded in reality and compassion...his final work will give thoughtful readers plenty to think about."
“Paul Kurtz was a voice for a humane secularism before ‘the new atheism’ became fashionable, and his body of writings constitutes an articulate positive vision of what makes life meaningful, purposive, and worth living. We are lucky that he left us with this highly creative summation of his vision, filled with insights and bits of wisdom.”
