The Downfall of society
Materialism has become a defining feature of modern society. The relentless pursuit of material wealth and possessions has resulted in a society that values possessions over people, and materialistic ideals over spiritual ones. In "Materialism: The Downfall of Society," we explore the Islamic philosophical approach to materialism and its effects on society. Drawing from the literature of Shaheed Murtaza Mutahhari, an influential Islamic scholar, we examine the underlying causes of materialism and its negative impact on society.
Next, we turn to the psychological approach to materialism, drawing on the writings of Professor Tim Kasser. We explore the ways in which materialistic values and goals can lead to psychological distress and dissatisfaction.
On 4/8/2023 we will have a book launch event for the book From 9:15- 10:00 PM
