2ο ΔΙΕΘΝΕΣ ΦΙΛΟΣΟΦΙΚΟ ΦΟΡΟΥΜ
Ο Μαχάτμα Γκάντι, Ινδός πολιτικός, στοχαστής, και από τις μεγαλύτερες προσωπικότητες στον χώρο της Φιλοσοφίας στον 20ο αιώνα, αποτέλεσε τον εμπνευστή και τον μέγα διδάσκαλο των εννοιών που διέπουν μια ηθική και εμπλουτισμένη από τις αξίες κοινωνία.
2nd INTERNATIONAL PHILOSOPHICAL FORUM
Mahatma Gandhi, an Indian politician, thinker, and one of the greatest personalities in the space of philosophy within the 20th century became the inspiration and great teacher of the concepts that govern a moral and enriched by values society.
Through his work and his own personal life as well, he transformed into a shining paradigm for Humanity introducing the concept of Love and Peace in ways that even today unfortunately the modern society marching into the 21st century refuses to consolidate.
Gandhi was a pioneer with his spiritual teachings, because he impelled people to believe in a spiritual vision thus uniting people of the World under the orientation of Higher Good.
What is driven by the personal - and not only -profit can not constitute a Vision and possibly has no duration for it will soon degenerate as it’s been taught to Humanity through history.
Causes and Solutions of moral and economic crisis
Nevertheless the issue of Ethics puzzled many thinkers and philosophers for centuries who in turn are realizing that crisis is primarily a spiritual and mental one.
Mainly the reasons for the spiritual and moral crisis are seemingly complicated.
Voltaire made a very accurate statement on the interpretation of the supreme liberation of expression and perpetuation of spiritual ideas by his quote "I disagree with what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it", which today has been violated to the fullest along with other moral values and rights of the free thinking people.
On the other hand, control cooperates in combination with fear on a society that operates through doctrines and demonizes people and situations.
The reason for the use of extreme and non enlightening energies like fear and control are absolutely understood why it happens.
People who are not spiritually awakened are easily lure within the net of fear and control.
In a "Society" idealistic, as Plato stated (Plato's Republic), enclosing the whole truth of contemporary reality or as it should be presented within an advanced society, dominated by the concept of Justice, the political process, the contradiction of Philosophy to Poetry, the Awakening (Plato’s Cave) and Love to Man, Society and the True Knowledge.
The importance of the concept of Love and its influence upon the human evolution is very crucial as it’s comprehended as the opposite of Fear, and infused in almost all philosophies and religions of the World.
If ethics is a personal and universal issue, then the connection of her with the economic crisis is intertwined.
The Greek mythology shows us once again with a vivid means the punishment of Danaides into the Hades (Underworld).
According to the myth, Danaides after their descent to Hades were punished on throwing water into the Pit, in a leaking jar that could never be filled with water.
As far as the moral and economic crisis is concerned, attempting to solve both spiritually-moral as well as economic issues solely through theories without a practical application, but also with the force of simple numbers is alike the Myth of Danaides .
All the great teachers have taught us all Supreme Goods to overcome the modern scourge entitled Economic Crisis.
When we decide to change within ourselves we can change the world around us.
The transformation is an individual option, but concerns all Mankind.
The continuous development in all its forms is a law of life as long as it’s consistent with individual and global harmony.
This is the challenge in an Advanced Society, where everyone collaborates equally and driven by those Higher Values for the Common Good of Humanity.
