SCIENCE – guided by reason.

Digital Humanists pick up on the themes of the Humanist Manifestos (1933, 1973, and 2003) proposing that it is our “responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity”.
Applied to the technological future of our societies, we should ask the question: “What kind of ancestor to the future do we want to be?”
