Huxley’s Evolutionary Humanism

Huxley’s Evolutionary Humanism

Julian Huxley’s Evolutionary Humanism is a religion that he believed would save the world from war and destruction through unified ideology.  This link is related to this class and the recent reading on Carl Linnaeus as it discusses how science influences the religious views of scientists in specific time periods. Huxley believes that evolution occurs at cosmic, biological, and psychosocial levels, and that they are continually progressing towards a more complex state. He believes that psychosocial evolution was what is primarily occurring today, and that educating people about these concepts of evolution would allow them to control and direct their own evolution of their minds towards undreamed of progress.
