Resources

There is a huge variety of material available online for anyone interested in learning more about Humanism and its various principles. Most of this is coming from sources other than Oxford Humanists, and we do not claim to agree with or support everything stated in the media output, but it may be useful or of interest to those trying to move away from religion, wanting to argue apologetics, or for those promoting humanist principles.

Please contact us if you are aware of any other relevant or interesting sites or collections that we may wish to link to for our users.

Literature

Oxford Humanists members have listed books in their personal collections which have influenced or affected them in their path out of religion or through a secular life. This list provides recommendations for anyone wanting to explore Humanism, and books may be available to loan to OxHums members on request.

There are also a number of older important texts now out of copyright, digitised and  freely available to read online or download to your ebook reader, from Google books  and Project Gutenberg, We have provided a range of good starting points but suggest you browse the catalogue for more old but very important works.

There is also a short collection of poems and links to pages of writings and quotes on Humanist issues, which may be useful for your ceremonies or presentations
