Secular Buddhism :: Definition wrote:Secular Buddhism is concerned with the practice of Siddhattha Gotama’s four noble truths in this world. It encourages a naturalistic and pragmatic approach to the teaching, seeking to provide a framework for personal and social development within the cultural context of our time.
It's very similar to Secular Humanism but with an emphasis on the Buddha's teaching instead of the greco-roman philosophy:
Secular Humanism, alternatively known as Humanism (often with a capital H to distinguish it from other forms of humanism), is a secular philosophy. It embraces human reason, ethics, and justice while specifically rejecting religious dogma, supernaturalism, pseudoscience or superstition as the basis of morality and decision-making.
There are some very interesting interviews with Secular Buddhists (like Stephen Batchelor), Buddhist Sceptics (like Susan Blackmore) and scientists (like Rick Hanson, Britta Hölzel and others) who are studying the effects of meditation on the brain, mind and health.
