Seemingly an appeal to simple, shared humanity, humanism has proved over the last 200 years one of the most contentious and divisive of concepts. It has provoked a succession of bitter altercations and engages with some of the profoundest themes - religious, sexual, political - of modern life and thought. Starting with the 19th-century educationalists and historians, this study traces the emergence of the figure of Man in the writings of the humanists of the 15th and 16th centuries, and the freethinkers and philosophies of the 17th and 18th centuries. It explores the issues at stake in the encounters between humanism and a succession of intransigent anti-humanisms.
