Summary "Expanding upon the basic humanist principle that morality is a strictly human concern and should be independent of religious creeds and dogma - as was articulated in Humanist Manifesto 2000 and the two Humanist Manifestos issued in the mid-twentieth century - distinguished economist Rodrigue Tremblay articulates a much-needed code for global ethics, which further elaborates ten humanist principles designed for a world community that is growing ever closer."--BOOK JACKET.
