Dr. Saad Malook
Dr Saad Malook holds a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. In his PhD thesis entitled, The Ethics of Reverence for Humanity: A Rationale for a Cosmopolitan Common Mind for Global Peace, Dr Malook argues that reverence for all members of humanity, irrespective of their racial, cultural, ethnic, religious, or linguistic identities, is vital for acquiring peaceful coexistence. This mutual reverence can enable individuals to develop their human potential, such as rationality and creativity, that leads to create a kind of peace called positive peace. The central argument claims that a cosmopolitan common mind of reverence for humanity is essential for global peace.
