The Moral Landscape and Ethical Literacy - Ethical Literacy and the Education of Emotions - Self-paradigms: Descartes, Hume and Freud - Nur Ali Elahi (Ostad Elahi) - The Life and Thought of Nur Ali Elahi (Ostad Elahi) - Ostad Elahi's Bi-dimensional Model of the Self - Conclusion: Ethical Literacy and the Holistic Concept of the Self.
Recent developments in the natural and social sciences have brought great benefits to humanity, both in terms of our material wellbeing and our intellectual and conceptual capacities. Yet, despite a broad ethical consensus and highly developed innate faculties of reason and conscience, there seems to be a significant discrepancy between how we ought to behave and how we actually behave, leading to a disregard for the dignity of human persons across the globe. This book suggests that the problem arises from various misunderstandings of the nature of the self and that the solution could lie in adopting a holistic concept of the human person within the context of a carefully cultivated ethical literacy. It argues that the ideas of the Iranian philosopher Ostad Elahi (1895-1974) provide a powerful and compelling alternative to the dominant post-Enlightenment understanding of selfhood, education and morality.
