Andrew Copson ‘What I Believe’

Wednesday, November 13, 2024 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Andrew Copson presents a collection of interviews with a rich selection of non-religious thinkers.

What I Believe

Discover the rich diversity of non-religious thought today in this inspiring collection of interviews with over thirty different humanists in the public eye, including Stephen Fry, Sandi Toksvig and Alice Roberts. Humanists UK Chief Executive Andrew Copson speaks to actors, authors, activists and more to find out what they believe and the values, convictions and opinions they live by.

Inspired by the ‘What I Believe’ essays of two humanist greats – the philosopher Bertrand Russell and the novelist E M Forster – this book opens a window to different humanist perspectives of today. The humanist view of life is progressive and dynamic. All ideas, values, and beliefs are open to question and in this book you will find inspiration to shape your own worldview.
