Letter to the Editor. The Humanist, July/August. Mailer’s updates his definition of what a humanist is (his old one appeared in the October-November, 1951 issue), by stating that the Impressionist and post-Impressionists “were still painting out of a world where proportions of the human himself” were still in evidence, whereas in the current period art “is something much larger, much colder, and certainly more apathetic” to human life.
