Course Contents

Course contents begin with the question of Credulity and Incredulity. Then matter of Maturity and Immaturity leads us to understand the difference between Ideal and Material or Subjective and Objective. Here, some exercises for tracing the element of “wisdom” in a human, are involved. Sigmund Freud’s theory of Conscious, sub-conscious and unconscious guides us to explore the sphere of vision and “self”. Henry Bergson’s Élan Vital and Iqbal’s concept of “Khudi” gives a sense of free will and confidence that is necessary for initiating a new thought process and creating a new thought system. Thus! When new thought system expands the sphere of “Self”, a new version of “Ego” appears which is humble and tolerant. Following is the list of course contents in detail,
