Since this website was created in 2017, we have attempted to present freedom of expression content oriented to all parts of society rather than focusing on the important- but-predictable academic and media issues that dominate the freedom of expression conversation. We want to provide thoughtful consideration of freedom of expression as experienced apart from the ivory towers or the halls of journalism. We have our niche.
Humanist Perspectives has been a leading publication targeted to Canadian humanists for decades – it has a long-established niche. Featured articles are typically in-depth pieces that analyze contemporary global, national and local issues. The publication’s Winter 2018/2019 Issue (207) focuses on issues of freedom of expression.
Of particular note is an article titled “Speech, Truth and Power in King Lear” by Gwyneth Evans (available online via the Humanist Perspectives website) and Clifford Orwin’s article “John Stewart Mill and Today’s Campus Free-Speech Debates.”
