This chapter argues that a humanist naturalism, in affirming the postulate of humanity, asks of any social phenomenon how it affects the lives of people who live in the company of others, on whom they depend and from whom they need protection. It suggests that the four mainstays or pillars of humanist science are a concern for the quality of experience, the interdependence of morality and wellbeing, normative theory, and the prevalence and efficacy of ideals or standards.

Keywords:   quality of experience, morality, normative theory, humanist naturalism
