The ?human being? and ?humanism? have become thoroughly contested terms and widely denounced from a range of intellectual positions from behaviorism to post-modernism. After outlining some elements of the anti-humanist critique, the paper attempts to mount a defence. It concludes by suggesting some of the elements for a ?critical humanism?, and suggests that postmodernism and humanism need not be incompatible.
