Society of Humanity

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Society of Humanity (Persian: جامع آدمیت‎, translit. Jāmeʿ-e Ādamīyat‎) was a pseudo-Masonic group in Persia, active from 1904 to 1908.[1]

Inspired by the radical positivism of Saint Simon and the liberal humanism of Auguste Comte, it played an important role in the Persian Constitutional Revolution.[2]
