“Tremblay's ten principles provide us with a rational jumping-off point toward a new society no longer exploited by the power elites of church, state, and business.”
—Victor J. Stenger, author of the 2007 New York Times bestseller, God: The Failed Hypothesis
“Dr. Tremblay offers not just armchair philosophizing, but solid, historical argument and proposals for integrating humanist philosophy into both our everyday lives, and our social institutions. Policy makers, and laypersons alike should heed Tremblay's account of humanist principles, for in them lies a path to greater peace, tolerance, and societal progress.”
—David Koepsell, JD, PhD, former executive director of the Council for Secular Humanism, and assistant professor of ethics at the Delft University of Technology
"The gap in the Humanist literature concerning the explanations of how Humanists should conduct their lives is filled by The Code for Global Ethics. This book represents a valuable and indispensable guide through the complexity of modern life and moral issues facing us every day. It offers a natural and far superior alternative to traditional religious moralities."
—Marian Hillar,MD, PhD, professor of philosophy/religious studies and director of the Center for Philosophy and Socinian Studies; author of The Case of Michael Servetus (1511-1553) and Michael Servetus: Intellectual Giant, Humanist, and Martyr
“The principles proposed by Dr. Tremblay are dignity and equality, respect for life, tolerance and openness, sharing, anti-exploitation, reason, ecology, peace, democracy, and education. This is a timely book to read.”
—Daniel Baril, Canadian anthropologist and author
