Humility – Carl Sagan [4:54]


This video discusses the intellectual history of humanity’s place in the universe.  In the end, as we are dethroned from the center of the solar system and then the universe, and as we find out just how many stars and worlds are really out there, we are and should be humbled.

Discussion Questions

  • What lessons do you take from the enormous grandeur of the universe?
  • How can both Humanism and Religion inspire humility?  How can they both inspire pride?
  • Do you think there are alien civilizations?  What would it say about humanity if there were?

Keywords: humility, inspiration, spirituality, astronomy, awe, Sagan, virtue, character
