Humanitas: Launching January 1, 2023

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.” — Edith Wharton

“To know even one life has breathed easier because
you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are living at a critical time. The world is what we choose to make it, and for a long time we have, as a species, seemed to embody a kind of mercenary self-interest that is unsustainable, both for ourselves and for the world in which we live.

Now, nearly being 2023, it seems more important than ever to focus a critical lens on who we are and how we can find some means of transcending the conflict, chaos, and issues that humanity has imposed upon ourselves and our world.

To do this, Humanitas, launching January 1, 2023 (including our initiative, Discourse: Liberation) seeks to marry contemporary international issues, literature, philosophy, psychology, art, science, and history to embody a concept that began with the Roman statesman and philosopher Cicero and found its greatest embodiment during the time of Renaissance Humanism.

These components, when brought together, offer a means to engage in ideas and a discourse on what it means to be human, and how humanity can best continue seeking wisdom and a more enlightened, pragmatic, and reflective existence. This is indeed more important than ever, as is asking ourselves nuanced and essential questions.
