This book is the masterful Farsi translation of the second edition (2017, GRBooks) of the book from English by Dr. Abdu'l-Missagh Ghadirian. It examines the materialist concept of life and its destructive damage to individuals' welfare and societies' well-being worldwide. Material philosophy believes that matter takes precedence over mind and soul. According to such a concept, the human mind, consciousness, and soul are by-products of matter, and those who believe otherwise are "idealists." On the contrary, the Baha’i teachings advocate a logical and moderate balance between spiritual and material life as two pillars of a just civilization.


Received the Distinguished Scholarship Award by the Bahá'í Studies Association, this book analyzes the depravity of wealth and poverty and its disregard for social and economic injustices. Valuable insights into the harm of materialism on mental health are presented in this book. Unfortunately, materialism also contributes to increased consumerism, climate change, environmental degradation, and the spread of corruption, selfishness, and indifference to the plight of the millions who die of hunger and disease each year.
