A Manual for Creating Atheists

A Pitchstone Book

The Human Journey returns with an exploration of the Axial Age, roughly from 900-200 B.C.E. In the words of Karen Armstrong: "The prophets, mystics, philosophers, and poets of the Axial Age were so advanced that later generations tended to dilute it…All the traditions of the Axial Age pushed forward the frontiers of human consciousness and discovered a transcendent dimension in the core of their being…"

In the April 6 class we will cover the rise of ethical monotheism and the idea of the covenant community in Israel, and contemporary developments in Persia and other parts of the surrounding Middle East. 

The series continues with classes on May 11 (the beginnings of Western philosophy), June 8 (early Hinduism and Buddhism) and July 13 (Confucianism and Taoism).        

Consistent with the overall theme of The Human Journey, these movements in the four great cultural domains will be presented as a great and important chapter in the evolutionary story of Spirit’s ongoing movement through the historical process to become conscious of itself. 

All of David Drumm's classes are offered on a love offering basis and support the educational programs at Unity of Dallas.
