In its re­spect for sci­en­tific knowl­edge, the hu­man­ist move­ment em­braces the es­sen­tial value and good­ness of hu­man be­ings while cold-shoul­der­ing any be­lief in the divine or su­per­nat­u­ral—we don’t need God to be good, hu­man­ists say. Through­out his­tory, there have been a num­ber of coura­geous in­di­vid­u­als—epi­cu­rus, Cicero, Spinoza, Hume, to name a few—who ex­panded the “in­tel­lec­tual hori­zons and free­doms of hu­man­ity.” In this graph­i­cally il­lus­trated, sen­sa­tional project, based on a long-run­ning web col­umn in­volv­ing a time-trav­el­ing char­ac­ter named Dave, Dale De­bakcsy pro­files more than thirty ex­tra­or­di­nary thinkers, and hu­man­ism takes a bow in them all.
