A Reply to Hansen's Cultural Humanism


concerning this article should be addressed to Matthew E. Lemberger, Department of Individual, Family and Community Education, Counseling Program, University of New Mexico, 128 Simpson Hall, MSC05 3040, 1 University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131 (e-mail: melt@unm.edu).


Hansen (2012b) responds to the author's (Lemberger, 2012) critique of his humanistic vision by dividing their arguments as either individual or cultural in design. In this reply, the author contends that the individual cannot be extracted from her or his culture and, therefore, what is sufficient for a humanistic counseling culture must also be sufficient for each individual inspired by humanism.
