Paul Kurtz and Jan Eisler Take International Honors


The following article is from the Secular Humanist Bulletin, Volume 15, Number 2.


At the recent annual meeting of the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU) in Mumbai, India, Council for Secular Humanism founder Paul Kurtz added to his many accolades the International Humanist Award. IHEU President Levi Fragell said Kurtz "has for decades been regarded as the leading spokesperson for secular humanist ideals and values." The professor emeritus of philosophy at the State University of New York at Buffalo is the author or editor of more than 35 books, editor of Free Inquiry magazine, chairman of the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal, and head of Prometheus Books. Past recipients of the award have included Sir Julian Huxley, Andrei Sakharov and Elena Boner, and Alexander Dubcek.

At the same meeting, IHEU's fourteenth World Congress, Family Matters Editor Jan Loeb Eisler was elected IHEU vice president. In this prestigious and important position, Eisler will be one of six members of the Executive Council, which runs the IHEU. The IHEU has 90 member organizations in 33 countries.
