The Philosophy Cabinet**


a  philosophical barbecue


ÒHumanityÓ, Sunday, September 14 (philo barbecue)


In the name of humanity much has been claimed, acclaimed and reclaimed : crimes against humanity, for the sake of humanity, in humanityÕs eyes, in the wake of humanityÉHow are we to understand ÔhumanityÕ: as an ideal state or an ideal being or simply as an idea ?  Are there certain rules/codes of behavior that underlie the concept of humanity ?  What then are these codes of conduct ?  Is humanity the composite result of encompassing all human beings ?  Or is it an embodiment of certain principles as Heidegger suggests in retelling the ÔHumusÕ fable , that care and solicitude link us to each other in our daily existence on earth.
