A Neotranscendental Philosophy of Life
The ideal of higher humanism challenges our modern civilization and its diminished image of the human being. A critique of the ideologies of "bourgeois humanism" provides a pathway toward the renascence of human identity and human dignity. Historical illustrations, drawn from the higher heritage of humanity, revive values long forgotten. Ash Gobar re-argues the great argument for the impact of the "philosophy of life" upon the "quality of life." This is a timely work: the call of a modern philosopher to awaken the conscience of humanity from its existential vertigo.
"The ideal of higher humanism that Ash Gobar advances also represents our ideal for the future of mankind in this trouble-laden world."-Hermann Wein, Author of Philosophie als Erfahrungswissenschaft
Ash Gobar is a transcendental thinker with an original turn. His early book, Philosophic Foundations of Genetic/Gestalt Psychology (1968), advanced the psychological perspective against the physicalist perspective. His later book, Philosophy as Higher Enlightenment (1994), presented dialectical paradigms toward a transcendental worldview. And now Higher Humanism (2017) advances a neotranscendental philosophy of life wherein the ideal of higher humanism provides an attunement toward moral metamotivation and cultural renaissance in consequence.
