From humāns ‎(humane, compassionate) +‎ -isms. Probably not derived as such in Latvian, but borrowed and adapted from another Europen language.




humānisms m (1st declension)

  1. (philosophy) humanism (belief system characterized by tolerance, concern for human welfare, and the concept of human dignity)
    humānisma idejas — the ideas of humanism
    humānisma tēma literatūrā — the topic of humanism in literature
    abstraktais humānisms — abstract humanism

    dziļa cilvēcība nekad nav savienojama ar uzspēli, pozu, dziļš humānisms parasti savienojas ar emociju godīgumu un atklātību — deep compassion can never be united with playing, posturing; deep humanism usually combines with emotional honesty and openness
