Moral Intuition, viewed from a Psychological Perspective

Friday 19 November 7.30pm - 9pm

with Dr. James Dyson

Moral Intuition - as Steiner used the term - represents a precondition for spiritual freedom and therefore underlies the concept of ethical individualism. This understanding forms the basis of every aspect of the methodology of Anthroposophical Spiritual Science, encompassing its foundational epistemological and philosophical basis and extending to its many expressions in practical life. Since Steiner’s time, psychology as a discipline has in many ways taken centre stage, to some extent eclipsing the more foundational disciplines of philosophy and cognitive science. Present-day psychology encompasses as wide a diversity of approaches as there are images of the human being, from the most sinister aspects of behaviour modification, based on fear, manipulation and mind control, to those that enhance and uphold the dignity of what it means to be a human being. In this talk, James hopes to indicate how an anthroposophically derived psychology complements and is enriched by many emerging mainstream insights.

Dr. James Dyson is working in adult education as a psychospiritual psychologist with a special interest in child development and
mental health. He was a practicsing physician for nearly forty years and co-founder in 1979 of Park Atwood Clinic, formerly an anthroposophical residential medical facility.
