These factors refer us to reactions to two very different kinds of ongoing threats: one “premodern” (in the case of creationism and 9/11, which the New Atheists understand as natural consequences of the persistence of premodern forms of religious fundamentalism) and one “postmodern” (in the case of epistemic and cultural relativism, which the New Atheists consider responsible for a misguided effort toward tolerance that takes the form of multiculturalism).

Indeed, when asked to give a summary of the life that pleases God, Christ advised his listeners to "love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind" and to "love your neighbor as yourself" (Matt. 22:37, 39). So let's give up the pretense; let's get on with becoming philosophically self-reliant, because there isn't any reason to believe that a God is going to hand us the answer any time soon. Heidegger later became very suspicious of this sort of existential politics.

Reason and intelligence are the most effective instruments that humankind possesses. You were redirected because this question was merged with Why is the movement called feminism and not humanism or egalitarianism?

Petrarch frequently admitted that his brother Gherardo's life as a Carthusian monk was superior to his own (although Petrarch himself was in Minor Orders and was employed by the Church all his life). Human existence, then, cannot be thought through categories appropriate to things: substance, event, process. His father had died when he was a child, leaving him in poverty, and he had been awarded a free scholarship in a religious institution, where he had been made continually to feel that he was accepted for charity’s sake, and, in consequence, he had been denied several of those distinctions and honours which gratify children.
