Joss Whedon: Cultural Humanist

August 23, 2009

Earlier this year, Joss Whedon was given the “Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism.”  The award is sponsored by the Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard and the Harvard Secular Society, and Whedon gave a speech at Harvard for the occasion.  The video of the speech was previously available on YouTube, but chopped up in parts, and rather difficult to watch.  Click on the link below to watch a high quality video of Whedon’s entire speech, which is actually quite long; or you can download the mp3 to listen.  I found the speech very thought provoking and insightful (but what else is new?).  Enjoy.
