Humanistic World Views

Humanistic World Views (Humanistische Lebenskunde) is aimed at students who areinterested in ethical and philosophical questions from a non-religious perspective.

Values such as self-determination, tolerance and responsibility form the ethical foundations of the subject. Within the lessons, the students are given space to think about topics like “Who am I?”, “Others and Myself”, “Emotions”, “Friendship”, “Health”, “Solving problems”, “The course of life”, “Environment”, and “World religions”. They are encouraged to work in various ways, discuss with others and find their own answers.

World Views classes are provided by the German Humanist Society, which has been offering the subject parallel to religious education in Berlin.
