Pope John Paul II yesterday told an academic audience that "authentic humanism" must be the foundation upon which every "educational and cultural function" of university life is built.
    He was speaking to students and professors during a visit to Rome's Tor Vergata University.
    Such an approach, he continued, would not alienate man from God. Real humanism, he argued, is "open to the divine mystery," and finds in it the source of authentic freedom. Alluding to a chapel recently constructed on the university campus, he observed that the academic life "also needs the light of faith" to "enliven reason."
