Abstract:
We have arrived at a turning point in human evolution: the moment of the birth of the human being. This paper examines the development of this idea in the Writings of the Báb, Bahá’u’lláh, and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, and its opposite concept, dehumanization.

About: According to the worldview of the Bahá’í Faith we have arrived at a turning point in the evolution of human history. This turning point is primarily the moment of the birth of the human being. In this paper I will first define what I mean by “the birth of the human being” and its opposite concept, namely, the logic of dehumanization. Then I will trace the development of this idea in the Writings of the Báb, Bahá’u’lláh, and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.
