Higher Humanism

A Neotranscendental Philosophy of Life


Ash Gobar

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.

About the author


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.
