An international journal bringing together academic writings using the filter of the philosophy of neohumanism, focusing on the transcendental, trans-disciplinary and transformative.
From our inaugural September 2023 issue:
“Sarkar’s imaginative grasp on culture and spirituality was such that he looked beyond his own cultural roots to that of the West, and he found in the aspirations and philosophy of Humanism the seeds of universalism that resonated with the universalism of the Vedas and Tantra. Yet he also identified Humanism’s fatal logic, which was its specist identification that put human needs, values and agency at the centre of the Western cultural project. His rethinking of Humanism as Neohumanism removes that impediment making way for an expanded culture based on spiritual connection, love and a kincentric ecology.” [A kincentric ecology generally includes humans, animals, plants and inanimate entities such as rivers and rocks.]

“… the process of cultivating a deeply ecological, post-human mindset depends on more than just new content; decentering the human requires a proto psychospirituality, that is, the conscious mental effort to expand the radius of one’s care outward from the limiting sentiments of Humanism to a universal love for all and a concern for the common welfare.”

“In 1960, the average salary of a CEO in America was about 60 times the average real wage. Today, it is more than 300 times. Almost the entire increase in productivity since 1974 has gone into the pockets of suppliers. This system is pure corruption. Suppliers pocket higher profits due to increased productivity without offering a proportional increase in wages–whereas some of those profits are allotted to politicians in the form of campaign funds to keep that corrupt dynamic going. … A just system will require that the real wage growth equals productivity growth of the economy so that everybody benefits from new technology, which is the main source of rising productivity.”
