Why Feminism Matters: Feminism Lost and Found by Cath Woodward & Sophie Woodward (Palgrave, £50) One Dimensional Woman by Nina Power (Zero Books, £7.99) Whatever happened to the women’s movement? In time Buber recognized the mistake of this essentially romantic, indeed nationalistic, conception of religion, and he sought in Ich und Du (1923; I and Thou) and other works to redefine the biblical concept of revelation as a dialogue between a human being and a transcendent, personal God.

Humanist Chaplains have been employed for decades, and their missionary activities have been perhaps most significant on college campuses. More influential still, but not to good effect, were the religious and moral views of pagan antiquity. There are many theories in education that have been drawn from psychology some of these have to do with teaching and others with learning. Education, the key to the discovery of one’s humanitas, was a fundamental element in the development of “humanism.” Although the old universities remained in the grip of scholasticism, existing schools were revitalized and new ones established all over Europe to make available a classical education, at least to an elite, and humanist thought prospered in informal groups, correspondence networks, and academies.

Simultaneously displaying the grand spirit of human aspiration and the more questionable hunger for superhuman powers, Faustus seems in the play to be both exalted and punished. This is an important part of NAM thinking. Because the average New Ager believes himself to be divine, he can then create his own reality. We can’t even begin to answer that question.

[22] Transhumanism has often been criticized for not taking ethical issues seriously on a variety of topics, [23] including life extension technology, [24] cryonics, [25] and mind uploading and other enhancements. [26] [27] Francis Fukuyama (in his doctrinaire neoconservative days) caused a stir by naming transhumanism "the world's most dangerous idea."
