Publications

Publishing and disseminating ideas has been a core task of the humanist movement since the emergence of the first books on modern humanism at the beginning of the twentieth century. In 1927, the first humanist organization, the Humanist Fellowship, was formed at the University of Chicago, resulting in the first humanist periodical, the New Humanist.

Humanist Manifesto I was published in its pages in 1933. Then in 1941 the Humanist Fellowship was reorganized into the American Humanist Association (AHA), and the Humanist magazine was launched to replace the earlier journal. The Humanist has been in continuous publication ever since.

Over the years other periodicals, and a humanist publishing house, have joined in the mission to share and debate humanist ideas.
