Mormon Mental Health Leaving Plato S Cave Understanding And Transcending Our Objectification Of Others

Rather than offering a narrow definition of objectification, this presentation explores it as a spectrum of misapprehension running from its mildest form (casual indifference) to its most extreme manifestation, (dehumanization). Gleaning insights from classic philosophy, the world’s five most prominent religious traditions, and current social science research, the presentation examines the best antidotes humankind has devised thus far to move us from casual concern for our fellow human beings toward interconnectedness and, ultimately, unity consciousness.
